Northwestern Lake Riding Stables is located in the Columbia Gorge just outside of White Salmon, Washington, and across the river from Hood River, Oregon. We are about 1 ½ hours east of Portland, Oregon. Northwestern Lake Riding Stables is unique, because it sits in its own little valley surrounded by the majestic Cascade Mountains of Washington. Our trails wander up and down hills, through creeks and streams, and offer stunning views of the valley and Mt. Hood. Wildlife abounds, and there are frequent sightings of deer, wild turkeys and an occasional elk. We provide guided trail rides, from one to four hours depending on the stamina of your “Derriere”.
