HISTORY ON HORSEBACK

Bring Your Own Horse

Ride along historic trails on our guided History on Horseback tours. Interpretive rides take place on the second Saturday of the summer months (except July) beginning May 11, 2019. Cost is $25 per rider and you need to bring your own horse.

Take part in a unique experience not available anywhere else in the country. Led by a historically uniformed guide, riders will be entertained by the history of fort Stanton and a demonstration of soldiers' horse skills. Put your horsemanship skills to the test as you’re immersed in the intricacies of military drill on horseback. Afterwards, enjoy a tour of the fort and then a trail ride in some of Fort Stanton's most scenic back country.
