Horseback Riding


Horseback riding and carriage rides with families in the great outdoors provide the kind of active, memory-making adventure that children and adults can share.

Black Mountain Horseback Riding

Known for classic New England Skiing and Riding during the winter months, our slopes transform into gently winding paths and scenic pastures during the summer. Explore our ski area from the comfort of horseback and enjoy stunning mountain views, wildlife, and incredible foliage in the fall.

Kids too young for mountain rides (10 and below OR under 80 pounds) love our pony rides that meander near the beautiful base area. Pony rides are subject to availability.  After horseback riding, enjoy the valley’s miles of rivers, hiking trails and mountain roads, or take in the quaint Jackson Village and the legendary Jackson Falls; only a few minutes drive away. Come enjoy a real mountain adventure with us this summer!

Currently Closed.  Typical horseback riding season runs early to mid-June, through mid-October weather permitting. Please visit our website soon for more details and departure times. 

To accommodate all riders, reservations are required, by phone ONLY. $25 registration fee (per rider) due at time of scheduling.

Reservations and inquiries: 603-383-4490.
