Horseback Riding Near Lake George

Our outstanding Lake George lodging provides the very best in accommodations and amenities for your vacation.  Rentals in Lake George Wilderness Lodging are a great alternative to the standard fare!

What vacation would be complete without a horseback ride? For many of us, trail riding when we were younger was a special treat, and became something to be remembered forever.  Now your Lake George vacation can include a  scenic horseback ride through the forested hills and mountains that surround the Queen of American  Lakes.

There are trails and rides for all levels of participation.  Even if you’ve never been on horseback before, your trained guides are committed to your safety and enjoyment. They will make sure that the ride you are taking and the horse you are riding are appropriate to your level of ability and comfort.

One of the most rewarding parts of a trail riding on horseback is realizing how experienced and agile the animals are.  As you make your way through the lush wooded Adirondack trails and over stream beds, the rhythm of horse and rider is relaxing, comforting and reassuring. Horses are instinctual animals, and are keenly attuned to your mood and emotions.  They are trained to respond to the needs of the rider and will do their best to make sure your ride is easyfun, and memorable.  You will experience the woods and the beauty of nature in a way that is totally unique. This is a particularly memorable experience for the little ones.  Children love the horses, and the feeling is mutual! Sharing the beauty of nature with them on horseback will provide them with cherished memories for many years to come.

Most trail rides last approximately one hour, giving you plenty of time to bond with your horse, enjoy some fresh air and get some exercise. Just a note: Horseback riding requires a surprising amount of exercise – you will probably become acquainted with muscles you didn’t know you had!

Just a short drive from your private vacation rentals in Lake George are several stables that provide hourly – or longer- rentals for trail rides. If you have a very large party or would like to take a lengthy ride, it might be a good idea to call ahead!

Take time to explore the incredible Lake George views and the Adirondack Mountains on horseback.  It is truly an experience of a lifetime and a pleasurable activity that will become a long-remembered Lake George vacation favorite!

Other fun activities for either rain or shine:

  • Paved bike trials
  • Adirondack hiking
  • Visit a Museum
  • Enjoy live entertainment
