We didn't ride horses on the day we visited the stables so I can't comment on that experience; however, our children loved the petting zoo! It was clean, and the animals were friendly. Lawton Stables is a beautiful property, and I highly recommend stopping by even if it is just to take a look around!

We've been going to HHI for 10 years, but just went to Lawton Stables this year. It was a great place for our little ones to ride ponies and pet animals on the petting farm. It is really nice and I can't wait until we can all go on the trail rides.

My wife who had never ridden a horse and I took the 1 hour trail ride with Alexis of Lawton Stables. We lucked out as we were the only tow riders for the 2 pm ride. The trail ride is terrific - we went into part of the 600 acre the Sea Pines Forest Preserve through civil war cotton and indigo crop fields now covered in old growth oak and Palmettos. We saw the 'Vanishing Lake" that is 2 feet below sea level as well as one of the large fresh water lakes, Lake Joe. We rode past one of Sea Pines 400 alligators who was sunning on the lake bank. The trail ride was a great new way to explore Sea Pines Plantation. Our horses Gator and Cajun were well behaved horses and we had a totally fun time at Lawton Stables. Tip - if you have little kids Lawton Stables has a fun petting zoo complete with a tame deer "Callie". A definite stop if you are in Sea Pines.

There used to be two horse back places on the island. One was a much smaller operation but you rode out to the beach. The prices were the same. It can get expensive. I have done it a couple of times and love to ride horses. I just cannot always afford so I stick to other activities. The people are nice and its almost always packed.Make reservations.

They treat the animals so well here. Horseback riding, a nice petting area with a gorgeous friendly deer, and pony rides.

GREAT for young kids. Super staff, and just a nice place to spend an hour or so.
