Giddy Up! At Niagara Riding Stables
Dinah McGibbon has always loved horses and nature. I’ve been around horses and have lived on the Niagara Escarpment all my life. Not only have these magnificent, beautiful creatures provided me with years of riding experience, I’ve been surrounded by the natural beauty of these protected woodlands. I’d love to introduce you to horseback riding here at Niagara Riding Stables, especially since ours is the only public trail ride situated right along the escarpment in the Niagara region.
If you’ve only ever heard about the joys of horseback riding, come experience it first-hand at Niagara Riding Stables. Their location is “head and shoulders” above the rest, literally! You will treasure your time spent there for a lifetime. Take a scenic ride along the Niagara Escarpment on horseback. Leave your troubles behind as you meander through peaceful woods on one of their well-trained, well cared for horses.
Niagara Riding Stables is open year-round but due to unpredictable conditions, winter rides are weather permitting. There is a lot to see on a trail ride through the escarpment. Go trail riding along the Niagara Escarpment and experience this beautiful natural environment from horseback.
