Horseback Riding

Saddle Up Stables is known for having the best trails in the area.  

Please Read and Follow All Directions and Rules for a SAFE visit and Ride.

Guided Trail Rides take about 45 minutes to an hour to complete.  The wooded trail offers views overlooking Lake George.

  • The stable opens at 9:30 am.  Online Reservations and also Walk-Ins Welcome.
  • We try our best to get you out on time.  Sometimes we have to accommodate different groups as horses are available, such as horses for children or adults) Please try to understand this and respect our decisions. 
  • Children must be 8 years old and meet our height requirement of 50″ to go on the trail. (NO EXCEPTIONS!) If they are unable to go on the trail we have pony and horse rides around the stables for any age)
  • WEIGHT LIMIT 250 lbs 
  • Horseback Riding may not be suited for anyone with disabilities. This is riding out in the wilderness and not in a controlled environment. You must pay attention for the entire ride which lasts about an hour and be able to respond to quick and sudden movements a horse may make. Please discuss any situation you have with the desk staff at signing in.
  • No dress code is enforced, however long pants and closed-toe shoes are strongly recommended.  You are riding in the woods and against leaves.  Pants protect your legs and proper shoes fit the stirrups better. So please dress accordingly.
  • Helmets are required for anyone under age 18. We provide riding helmets free of charge. The helmets are sprayed after each use and shower caps are available upon request.
  • No carry-on items are allowed! Do not bring backpacks, pocketbooks, or cross-body bags. No Water Bottles Allowed.  Floppy Hats must be securely fastened so they will not blow off.  Phones easily fall out of your back pockets when riding, so leave them at the desk. Dropped phones will not be picked up and can be damaged. We are not responsible for lost or damaged items.  So please be prepared to leave your items at the stable office or your car. This includes carry-on bags, purses, backpacks, water bottles, etc.  These items can not only be a distraction but also any loud noise could frighten your horse and these items could be dropped making it unsafe. We will happily take your picture using your phone or camera when you return from the ride.

*For your own safety, you should not carry anything with you while riding a horse.  Your full attention must be on riding your horse at all times. The trail is out in the forest where there are deer and other wild animals occasionally, so you need to be alert at all times while riding. We are happy to take your photo or group photo for you. Please plan on leaving your camera or phone with us at the desk.
