Wisconsin Dells may be known for its waterparks, but there is so much more to discover in the Dells. If you are searching for the perfect summer activity for the animal lovers in your family, consider horseback riding in Wisconsin Dells. Horseback riding is an excellent way to experience nature and have fun while doing so. Sand County Vacation Rentals are centrally located to the local riding stables and offer the perfect lodging for your family. Try something new this summer and saddle up in the Dells! 

Canyon Creek Horseback Riding Stable

Canyon Creek Horseback Riding Stable offers family-friendly rides with several highlights along the way. They offer a one-hour guided tour where you will ride past wildflowers, a pond, a small waterfall, rock formations, and a western town. That's right; Canyon Creek has its own western town with buildings like a saloon and sheriff's office. After your trail ride, stop at their free petting zoo. The kids will love feeding and petting animals like donkeys, goats, and sheep.

Red Ridge Ranch Riding Stable

Red Ridge Ranch offers horseback riding in Wisconsin Dells that the whole family will love. The most popular option is the one-hour guided trail ride through rolling farmland, past the Lemonwier River, and wooded hills. The ride is suitable for all ages and abilities, but if you have young kids who aren't comfortable with a full-size horse, they have pony rides available. The kids will be able to lead the pony around a confined area with a bag of treats to guarantee a fun and safe ride.

If you are an advanced rider interested in horseback riding on more challenging trails, sign up for their advanced or private rides. If you have any questions about scheduling your horseback ride, don't hesitate to call the ranch at 608-847-2273.

Lost Canyon Tours

Even though Lost Canyon Tours does not offer horseback riding, it offers tours led by horse-drawn wagons. This is an excellent option for those who want to interact with horses without getting in the saddle. The tour includes a mile ride through cliff-walled gorges, a natural wonder of Wisconsin. It will take approximately a half-hour to get through the canyon with a max of 15 people per carriage. Purchase your tickets by calling 608-254-8757.
