Shenandoah National Park Horseback Riding

2020 Season Opening June 12


Skyland Stables - Shenandoah National Park

There is no more genuine way to experience Shenandoah National Park than on horseback. A guided ride through a wooded trail on a mode of transportation yet to be improved upon by any technology offers an entirely new perspective.

Horseback and pony rides are available at Skyland Stables (mile 42.5 on Skyline Drive) throughout the day, weather permitting. Horseback rides depart from the stables, cross over Skyline Drive, and travel past the Limberlost area through an old apple orchard.
