Looking to get back in the saddle or just wanting to check horseback riding off your bucket list? Great idea. Sundance Riding Stables offers horseback riding for riders of all skill levels and is less than 20 minutes from The English Inn.
There’s nothing quite like a leisurely trail ride through the country on the back of a gentle, well trained horse. The fresh open air, unspoiled scenery, and the big, beautiful animal beneath you combine for an experience that is equal parts thrilling, calming, and unlike anything else.
Sundance Riding Stables offers guided trail rides and riding lessons in the Lansing area for riders of all skill levels, advanced to beginner.
Guided Trail Rides
Sundance Riding Stables guided trial rides take you through the beautiful meadows and woods of their 200 acre spread. Trail rides last an hour, giving you plenty of time to soak up the views and experience. Watch for wildlife while you’re on the trail, you may see deer, wild turkeys, and more!
Prospective trail riders will be asked about their past riding experience to help choose the appropriate mount. Don’t worry if your answer is none. Sundance trains riders and their stable of horses includes many gentle animals perfect for the beginning rider. Guided trail rides are walk and trot only, making for a safe and easy ride.
Have a little one under 8 who wants to ride? They can’t be on a full size horse but Sundance will rent you a pony for parent led pony rides around the facility. Fun for everyone!
Weekday trail rides leave on the hour, throughout the day. Weekend trail rides leave every half hour. The last trail ride leaves the corral at 6pm. Prospective riders should plan to be at the facility 30 minutes prior to their proposed ride time.
