THE 1000 Acres
Horses & Barn
For almost a century The 1000 Acres Ranch has been known for having one of the best riding programs in the Adirondacks and 2020 will be no different. With an expanded riding program, miles of reclaimed trails and a new stock of horses this season will surely offer something for beginner and experienced riders alike.
All rides listed below are available to guests as well as the general public.
Non-guest riders can reserve a saddle by calling our office.

last an hour and typically covers
about 3 miles.

trot and canter rides. These rides are by
appointment only and the ability of each

prior to the start of the ride.
EXTENDED RIDES & ARENA ACTIVITIES
Stopover Ride- For those that want a little extra time
in the saddle we're happy to offer an
extended ride with a stopover for
lunch along the Stony Creek. These
rides typically last about two and a

and offers something found nowhere
else in the Northeast. Riders will
cross the Hudson River and traverse
some of the most beautiful trails in
the Adirondack Park. This ride is
available when nature permits so call

obstacles, sorting them by color or
number and getting them in the proper
pen. Get a true cowboy experience

on all the different rides the ranch
has to offer.
