Franconia Notch Stables Franconia NH
The Franconia Notch Stables offer hourly horseback tours 7 days a week. Located at the very scenic Franconia Inn, we're just 2 miles from the village of Franconia. On a regular day our first ride departs at 9:30 am and follows every hour and a half after that, the last one usually being 3:30. (However, we are happy to accommodate our customers needs and often do 8 am rides or evening rides, so please don't hesitate to ask!)
Our 1 hour excursion takes riders through fields and forests as it looks onto Mt. Lafayette, Kinsman Ridge, and Cannon Mt, with other exquisite mountain views. A fan favorite is crossing through the beautiful Hamm Branch River where your horse may stop for a drink. If you're lucky, you might come across a moose on our early morning tour or deer, turkey, and/or turtles anytime throughout the day! Keep an eye out for beaver as you pass through Beaver Bend, a scenic woods path that twists and turns with the riverside.
Our 1 hour tours are walking only; they are a beginner friendly and gentle ride. Children must be 8 years old to go on our 1 hour tour. For children 7 & under, we offer a 5 minute horseback ride led by lead rope for $10.
Our tours go by reservation so please call ahead of time to ensure your spot!
