We had a great time horseback riding. It was a relaxing ride and we enjoyed the beautiful sights around Mackinac Island. It would have been nice if our tour guide was a little more interactive with us and maybe explained some sights, history, etc. Regardless,...More

This business seemed to be run by young people who did the least amount of work possible. At 45$ for one hour one would expect pleasant customer service. The guide did not engage in conversation and every employee seemed disinterested and just going through the...More

My husband and I were there last December, and decided to return in September. He LOVES riding horses and wanted to ride alone on the trails. It took very little time to sign up and get a horse--it was just after Labor Day. They started...More

One of the things that makes the Island so special is the fact that horses are the main mode of transportation. So it seems reasonable that the family takes a horsey ride. However, the horses at Cindy's Stable are not nice at all. Okay, some...More

Staff was friendly. We were able to go off on our own which is hard to find these days. Horses knew the ropes. Highly recommended.

Hi Shelilah! As long as they're big and strong enough to handle steering and stopping a horse, kids 10 and up can ride their own horse by themselves. We do not require an adult to accompany children, but we strongly... More

You can contact the Mackinac Horseman's Association (just google them). They will board horses. Not sure if they have a minimum for how long you have to have them there. Also check with Arnold line ferry on the cost and... More
