Equestrians unite! It’s time to explore Tahoe the same way our ancestors did! The trails that bikers, hikers and backpackers traverse each day in South Lake Tahoe are also used by equestrian enthusiasts as well. There are a number of horse trails crossing the Sierras, and the landscape constantly changes for those up to the adventure. Riders are rewarded with the most spectacular views of the Sierras, including the High Desert, Carson City and all neighboring cities and towns of Northern California and Nevada.
South Lake Tahoe’s horseback tours are an ideal option for those who aren’t able to ride in their day to day lives. Experienced riders guide you on the backs of experienced horses, and ensure that your experience is anything but disappointing. There is no finer feeling than riding through a high mountain meadow with nothing around you but nature. Your breathing matches that of your faithful companion as you both charge towards your destination. There is a sort of magic that comes out of riding horseback through the mountains. It takes you back to a time when the world seemed easier to understand. There are no distractions, and the hum of civilazion is replaced by the steady footsteps of your four-legged partner. It is something we all would like to do once in our lives – let Tahoe be the place!
