SADDLE UP STABLES TRAILS ARE THE BEST IN THE AREA.
Beautiful trails wind along the mountainside through the wooded ancient forest to the top of the mountain where you see a one of a kind view overlooking Lake George from horseback.
Experienced trail guides will accompany you on the ride. While riding on the trails, you may see a deer or two and other wildlife along the way. A few old landmarks dating back hundreds of years can be seen as you pass by. There is nothing as beautiful as riding a horse under the majestic hemlocks and pines where it can be quite cool in the forest, so you don’t need sunglasses and may need a light jacket on cooler days.
Our trails are wide with plenty of room to ride. No narrow trails here. We regularly maintain our trails and keep them in the best conditions. The trail goes at a peaceful pace to ensure your safety.
Horses are chosen to match the rider to the horse according to your ability and size. Sometimes you may request a horse if you have ridden that horse before if he is available. However, please let us make a professional decision as to what horse is given to a rider.
The trail ride takes approximately an hour. With our new reservation system, we will do our best to get your group out on time. We do accept walk-ins if there is availability. Please call to check if you don’t see a time you need.
Riding Requirements for the Scenic Trail Ride
- Must be at least 7 years and 50 inches tall. NO EXCEPTIONS
- WEIGHT LIMIT 250 lbs
- If anyone in your group has any physical or mental disability, they may not be able to go on the trail ride. This is not a controlled ride that you would find in a therapy program designated for therapeutic riding. Don’t ask to send someone out on the trail that is not capable of controlling their horse, paying attention and being alert the entire time while riding a horse. It is extremely important the Office Staff is notified before you sign up to ride the trail. This is an active sport that requires your alertness, attention and able to balance properly. For your safety and the safety of others, a hand led horse ride might be more suitable and we’d gladly give you a ride on one of our horses.
NOTE TO OUR CUSTOMERS REGARDING RESERVATIONS
We schedule several groups per hour. So each hour, the first ride goes out on the trail, then we will start the next group. You do not have to wait for the first group to return.
With this being an unusual year, and being short staffed, we are trying our hardest to get our rides out on their schedule times. There will be some delays and we apologize if you have to wait. Because we try to match each horse with each rider, that may mean we may need to wait for a particular horse. Please bear with us as we are doing our best
