We brought our teenagers for their first riding experience and we all had a great time! The staff were very conscious of our inexperience and were very patient with us. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the horses and the trail. We will definitely go back again next year!!!!

We happened to pass this by on the way to eat, and my wife and daughters gave a trail ride a try, and ended up saying it was the highlight of the trip.(and that is saying alot). The views were great, staff was nice. The only downside was that my 4 year old rode a pony which got spooked and... More

I have been on many horseback ride trails and, this one was the nicest by far. We had an awesome trail guide who made sure everyone was okay and he made sure that the horses were all behaving. He also stopped the horses so that we could take a look at the scenes of Lake George while we were on... More

A super nice experience. The place is very organized and safety is a big priority. The horses are gentle and you don't need to be a experienced rider to have a great time. They have pony rides for the kids. Rides are 1,2,and 3 hours. My wife and I did a 1 hour ride and it was just right for... More

The kids had talked about riding real horses for a number of years. Saddke Up Stables gave them the chance. Our youngest was a bit hesitant, but the staff reassured everyone. In the end, we all had a great time. Saddle up, pardner. It's easier than you think. :-)

The family that has run this stable for years has done a nice job maintaining the trails.The horses were well taken care of, and steady on the trail. We had 7 riders aged 9 to 47, of varying experience levels. It was a great experience!

Lovely trail ride through the forest, only saw one view, but it was still super enjoyable regardless, and I'd live to go again. The horses are very well cared for, and the trail guides are helpful with tips for riding and managing the horses. Good for all levels, no reservations were required. Restroom was a port-a-potty (at least it was... More

Had a wonderful ride with a helpful guide and responsive horse. They make a great effort to match the right horse with each rider. Reasonably priced. Lovely ride with beautiful view of the lake. Would love to visit again.

My husband and I decided to go horseback riding for our 32nd wedding anniversary. Neither of us had ever really rode a horse before, the staff at Saddle Up was great! We were given a size and experience appropriate horse, and taken on a beautiful trail ride along with another younger couple. The trails wind thru the Adirondack forest, up... More
