Horseback riding in the Lake George Area is a large piece of the Original Vacation. From long rides along wooded trails to that first ride on a pony, horseback riding is always a good time in the Lake George Area.

If you want to take a trail ride there are plenty of options in the Lake George Area. Horseback riding is a fun and relaxing way to immerse yourself in the Adirondacks. Guides who know the trails and horses like the back of their hand ensure that your ride is a safe experience. Bring your family and ride the wide open trails as a group. Beginners are welcome, and tour guides will make sure you return to the stable safe and sound. If your kids would rather not ride the trails some establishments offer pony and horse rides close to the stables. For a completely western experience head to a dude ranch and immerse yourself in the old west culture. At a ranch, you can ride the trails on horseback as well as swim, waterski, and enjoy live entertainment. Saddle up and ride!
