While visiting the Adirondacks and Lake Placid be sure to include horseback riding for one of your most memorable of your vacation activities. Family run, we offer the gentlest horses in the area and unlike most stables we keep them through retirement. We also run a Horse Rescue, and most of our horses came from auctions and other, unfortunate circumstances. Rides are approximately 45-50 minutes with an additional instructional lesson prior to the ride to help you familiarize yourself with how the horses have been trained and answer any questions you may have. Longer rides available for year 2012. SEI certified helmets provided. Children and Family friendly. We are an easy drive from Saranac Lake, Keene, Wilmington, Plattsburgh, and Essex areas. Walking distance from Main Street in Lake Placid.

We picked a cool day but it was worth it. The frosted trees made for a surreal and peaceful ride through forest. Loved the view on the hill, it was simply gorgeous. Very professional outfit with thorough instruction and fantastic horses. One of the best stables we have ever gone to.

My son and I enjoyed a private trail ride, with Travis as our guide. The weather was beautiful, but this was just one aspect of a wonderful experience. Guests are walked through an informative introduction, or reminder of the basics to riding. This is tremendously helpful. The horses are good natured, well cared for, and our guide made things much... More

Being a horse crazy woman, my husband and I go trail riding wherever we go. Hands down this was the best trail riding place we have gone too. I thought I knew a lot about horses but after the very concise and thorough orientation we received I realized how much I still had to learn. The horses were very well... More

Booked a half day ride October 1st and it was fantastic. After spending hours on a beautiful trail ride, it was a real treat to have such delicious lunch looking over to Whiteface Mt, with the horses tied nearby. As city people my wife and I found it to be so peaceful and serene. Great horses, great instruction, guide, and... More

We went on an hour ride and will go back again for a longer ride! Our guide was Zach and he was very nice and made sure our group... More

My family and I had just completed our guide and would have to say we absolutely loved it. The ride was very peaceful, the horses were very tame, and the ranch was kept in great condition. Our guide was Zach and we would recommend him to anyone, very polite and made sure we were comfortable before starting. Will definitely be... More

We have been horseback riding at many different places, but this was the first time we had such a comprehensive lesson. I learned more about horses than I ever did elsewhere. Zach our guide was friendly and likable. He was great with my youngest daughter and really made her feel comfortable The horses were fantastic and very well cared for.... More

My teenage daughter and I arrived on time at XTC Ranch, the summer riding location, for a 9am 2 hour private ride. We were greeted by an unfriendly female guide, who never introduced herself. As we signed waivers and watched a short video, she began getting horses ready. We had to wait until 10am to mount our horses. We weren't... More

I should have know this was going to be a bad situation when within minutes of confirming our ride time online, a call came in asking us to chage to a later time as someone else had just booked also (understandable). Natalia as you would will read on other reviews is as inviting as a porcupine. On my reservation I... More

Dear Reviewer, We must admit that we never expected your review to be negative. According to your husband, he suffered from a brain tumor, had two strokes, multiple blood clots and a bad knee/hip, among other ailments that he disclosed, all of which caused him to have episodes of vertigo or loss of balance. Your 9:00 am private had two... More
