Trail and Pony Rides

Trail and Pony Rides

Along with boating, a great way to experience Lake Lanier is on horseback. A different perspective is possible for guests when they are this close to nature on one of our trail or pony rides. A 45-minute trail ride along the shores of Lake Lanier is a great outdoor adventure for older kids and adults. For guests who want a longer ride, other options can be arranged in advance. The 15-minute pony rides are an excellent way to introduce the pleasure of horseback riding to younger kids (ages 2-6, weighing less than 80 pounds). An adult must accompany all children on pony rides.
