We are a 3rd generation family farm, that offers guided trail rides and hand-led pony rides. Relax on horseback while you take in beautiful Northern Michigan scenery and wildlife. We are open 7 days a week by appointment. Please wear long pants and closed-toed shoes, preferably boots as your ride may be rescheduled if you are not wearing proper shoes. Come out and enjoy nature on a beautiful horse or let your little one experience a pony ride through our little orchard.

These horses are very well taken care of and are great for a trail ride. The guides are always very friendly. The entrance is somewhat rough looking - don't let that scare you off! We will return again next year.

Our guide Amanda was wonderful; the trail through pastures, 150 year old apple orchards, oak forest and cedar forest was wonderful; our mounts Trooper and Raven were wonderful. A Great way to spend some time in northern Michigan.

Family-owned stables and wooded property near Burt Lake. The stables are a series of small sheds that are in poor condition, but the 50+ horses are in fine condition. Family members or neighbors direct the riding sessions through open fields and heavily wooded sections around...More
