Mountain View Rocking B Ranch, formerly Bennett’s Riding Stable, offers an authentic, western trail riding experience right here in the Adirondack Mountains. Family-owned and operated for over 75 years, the stable welcomes horseback riders late spring, summer, and early fall for rides on their private, wooded trails along the base of Beech Mountain. Round up your traveling companions – horseback riding with Mountain View is a great family-friendly activity to add to your vacation itinerary!

Mountain View offers a handful of unique guided trail ride experiences with varying lengths. Their guides make it easy for novice riders to learn the ropes, or should we say reins, on their hand-led junior rides (walk-in only) and popular one-hour trail rides (reservation required) looping through shaded woods.

More experienced riders and thrill seekers should make a reservation for their two-hour Mountain Ride or Sunset Dinner Ride that climbs Beech Mountain with breathtaking views of the Lake George Area as far as the eye can see. On the Sunset Dinner Ride, you’ll be treated to a full-course dinner prepared right at the summit including appetizers, bread and butter, tossed salad, baked potato, and your choice of steak, salmon, or chicken, and dessert.

Rise and shine with the Good Mornin’ Breakfast Ride. If you’re a morning person this one’s for you! After a ride through the woods at daybreak to bridge over a mountain stream, enjoy a breakfast spread of scrambled eggs, ham, biscuits, fruit, juice, and coffee.

*Specialty rides not available after Labor Day.
