Review of Northwestern Lake Riding Stables

Northwestern Lake Riding Stables
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Northwestern Lake Riding Stables is located in the Columbia Gorge just outside of White Salmon, Washington, and across the river from Hood River, Oregon. We are about 1 ½ hours east of Portland, Oregon. Northwestern Lake Riding Stables is unique, because it sits in its own little valley surrounded by the majestic Cascade Mountains of Washington. Our trails wander up and down hills, through creeks and streams, and offer stunning views of the valley and Mt. Hood. Wildlife abounds, and there are frequent sightings of deer, wild turkeys and an occasional elk. We provide guided trail rides, from one to four hours depending on the stamina of your “Derriere”.

“Nice views and scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

The views were great and would have been even better if we saw mt. hood! Loved the horses; they all had such different personalities! unfortunately, you shouldn't expect too much interaction with the guides. they were considerate of my inexperience but didn't provide as much commentary/history of the area as I would have liked.

Bring your own seat cushion if you want to avoid a $5 charge.

Disclaimer: our ride was during the recent wildfires in Oregon so we didn't have a view of Mt. Hood and it was very smokey out.

“Absolutely fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

We had an amazing ride today with Alyssa as our guide. The views are breathtaking and magical, horses are obidient and sweet, and Alyssa even pointed out a deer with a fawn as we walked right past them! The staff is very personable and informative, they went as far as looking up other attractions for us in the area. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone!

“Excellent Ride. Beautiful Views and Solid Horses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We had a great family ride last week at NW stables. It is a little hard to find, but worth the trip. It is quality operation that is strong on safety, but also lets you ride

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

We had a great time riding the trail at Northwestern Lake riding stables. It was one of the highlights of our family reunion.The family was great and took time to get to know us before taking us out to ride. They explained everything incredibly well and really knew the horses. They told us what to expect from our horse and how to handle them. We got the CD of pictures and it was well worth the money. We enjoyed every minute of our trip. We definitely recommend this riding stable to anyone hoping to have a good time.
