My kids age 22 and 19 enjoyed their trail ride. It seemed organized. They were at the pace of a walk or slow trot. They saw a good bit of the preserve and alligator lake.

Inexpensive pony rides around the farm for children, outdoor farm animals that children can visit for free and feed for pennies, trail rides through the nature preserve for adults. A great afternoon away from the beach to chill out the kiddies! Check the sea pines event calendar for special events for children at the Stables...lots of fun stuff!

This ride was excellent and the price reasonable.. The guides were great with instructions and helping a first time rider. The trail is very nice and scenic. Two alligators and a turtle were spotted on the hour ride. I do recommend Lawton and I would definitely visit again.

A great family experience! The small animal farm has a wonderful collection of goats, cows, chickens, pigs and sheep that the kids will love, and the pony and trail rides are well done! The guides are fantastic and the facility is impressive.

The Horseback rides, for adults, through the beautiful country side are truly a relaxing time. They have a small outdoor "Zoo" for the youngest family members. Their horses are very easy to ride, as long as you don't let them stop to eat the flowers or other such tasty vegetation. The tour guide always has interesting things to say. A... More

The kids love animals, so this was a must visit for us. Food is available, or you can bring apples or carrots for the horses. Pony rides are also available.

We are visiting from out of state and found this place... we're so glad we decided to go into sea pines (and pay the $6 gate fee for sea pines) to come here. The petting area was great for our 2+ year old and so was the pony ride. This was definitely a great activity on Hilton Head Island to... More
