Massachusetts horseback riding is a wonderful activity on a vacation

Enjoy great horseback riding in Massachusetts in bucolic rural areas and valleys, on hillsides and sunny and shaded trails, historic pathways and waterfronts. Farms and stables abound for boarding, equestrian equipment and rentals, programs and instruction. Many offer riding daily and year round. There are even some places to ride on the beach (usually out of season)! Saddle up on your next vacation or weekend getaway and stay local at a boutique or luxury hotel.
