Horseback Trail Riding Introduction
Guided Trail Rides
Spring through fall, you may arrange for a guided trail ride leaving from Skyland. View the schedules at www.goshenandoah.com/activities-events/horseback-riding (official park concessioner).
Shenandoah National Park offers over 180 miles of trails open to horse use. Some of these trails are relatively smooth, wide, gravel paths, while others are steep, narrow, rocky mountain trails that will challenge the experienced horse and rider.
Whether you are new to this area, or are looking for a new place to ride, this website plus a good map will get you started on your Shenandoah adventure.
Please Leave No Trace during your visit to Shenandoah National Park. Here are the seven principles of Leave No Trace and a few examples of how some might apply to your trail ride:

Leave What You Find
