Great ride in the woods up a mountain. Nice, quick view of Lake George near the top. Guide was great with us very inexperienced riders. A deer on the side of the path just watched us pass by. Very peaceful. Not allowed to take anything with you including cameras and cell phones for safety reasons. They want to make sure... More

The facility is well maintained and the horses seem super healthy and well cared for. All of the staff members we interacted with were very friendly. The trail ride was your typical easy-going walk, to an area with a great view of Lake George. I personally would've enjoyed a faster ride with some trotting or cantering but you can tell... More

Cleanest facility, cleanest horses, and great staff. I have ridden at 11 other stables in New York and while some of them are great, I would have to say Saddle Up is the most professional place. The trails were perfectly groomed and the staff was exceptional. If you want to go horseback riding whether beginner or not, this is the... More

This was on our list of things to do on our first trip to Lake George and we're happy we did it. I hadn't been on a horse in about 20 years and my wife and two boys (9,7) had never been. There were many healthy, clean horses and the area where they were kept was clean as well. There... More

We loved our experience here over this weekend. Laura was really nice and very friendly. She made sure that my daughter is happy and she was just sweet in taking us a little bit further up to get a nicer view of the lake.
