Horseback Riding in Lake Tahoe

August 13, 2012

Explore Lake Tahoe and the surrounding areas from a whole new perspective …while riding on horseback.   Take the family and escape into the beautiful natural scenery, surrounded by mature trees and the sights and sounds of nature.  There are a host of trails to choose from so your next horseback riding excursion will offer unique panoramas for the whole family to enjoy. Whether you engage in a guided outdoor adventure or are new to riding and want some instructions, there is something for everyone around the greater Lake Tahoe area.

There are a number of stables which cater to your Lake Tahoe horseback riding needs.

Camp Richardson Corral and Pack Station - Since 1934, the Ross family has owned and operated this facility, offering scenic guided horseback rides, steak dinner rides, summer hay wagon rides, back country pack trips, pony (gentle horses for children) rides and authentic winter sleigh rides in beautiful South Lake Tahoe.

Alpine Meadows Stables - Originally a pack station in the mid 1940's, hunters would gather their supplies and pack up their horses for heading into what now is Granite Chief Wilderness.  Alpine Meadows Stables was purchased by the Courtney Family in 1967, who keep the tradition alive by offering scenic guided horseback trail rides through National Forest and Wilderness lands.

Kirkwood Sierra Outfitters - Using U.S. Forestry Service Special Use Outfitter/Guide Permits, Kirkwood Sierra Outfitters offers Scenic Guided Horse Rides, Historical tours and Pack Trips throughout the Mokelumne Wilderness and the El Dorado National Forest. Encompassing  some of the most beautiful and spectacular terrain in the high Sierra you will find soaring mountain peaks, pristine alpine lakes, lush meadows covered with wildflowers, densely wooded forest and some of the most majestic views imaginable for you to experience.

Tahoe Donner Equestrian Center - Explore the local Sierras by horseback. View forests and high mountain meadows filled with wild flowers.  Catch a glimpse of the local wildlife; a deer with her young, a bear hunting for grubs or a hawk circling in the sky. Bring your toddler out for a pony ride. Join them at a Saturday night BBQ and indulge in a customized gourmet burger while you watch the kids play dress up & roast marshmallows.

Zephyr Cove Stables - The stables have good horses and wonderful views overlooking Lake Tahoe and offer guided rides as well as breakfast, lunch & dinner rides.
