Whether expert or beginner —choose from over 50 miles of trails!
A wonderful way to enjoy the scenic wilderness of the Adirondacks is on horseback. Horseback riding is a celebrated tradition in the Schroon Lake Region, which offers a range of options for equine lovers of all levels. Try a guided riding tour on a horse chosen to fit your skill level and personality! Or, embark on your own adventure on over 50 miles of Equestrian trails through woods, backcountry, and along waterways with stunning mountain backdrops. Enjoy days of riding by planning an overnight trip to the Frontier Town Campground which offers 33 equestrian camping sites. If being on a horse is less your thing, there are options for hayrides, sleigh rides, and even horse-drawn wagon rides!
Circle B Ranch located in Chestertown, NY, just outside of Schroon Lake, offers four seasons of riding. You can take a guided tour or venture out on your own. In the warmer seasons and fall — when the foliage is bursting with color — you have over 500 acres to choose from. Circle B also offers hayrides in fall. In the winter, they offer horse-drawn carriage rides or a romantic sleigh ride. Sit back as the horse takes you on an unforgettable sightseeing trip through the beautiful Adirondacks. No previous riding experience is needed here!
