Full description

Discover the Gettysburg Battlefield on a scenic horseback riding tour. Sit back and relax in your saddle as you take in the stunning nature surrounding you. Listen to the chirping birds, the wind in the leaves, and the hooves of your horse on the soft earth as you meander your way across the sacred ground beneath your horse's hooves.

After meeting your horse and becoming acquainted with it, use your mounting block to hop on its back. Then, follow your horse wrangler on your outdoor adventure across the Battlefield. Take in the peaceful nature as your horse gently walks through it.

Learn about horses and their integral part in the advancement of human history from your guide. Either learn a new skill or hone your existing one as you sit tall on your horse's back, paying attention to how it reacts to your movements and commands.

We booked the 3 hour Friday evening ride! The views were spectacular, the horses were beautiful and great. The owners were amazing... there is a horse path that you stay on so you don't ride next to the monuments or grave site, you see them at a distance. I've never been to Gettysburg on a tour so I didn't know what to expect. But we absolutely loved it, very private and personal would definitely recommend.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed riding horses through the battlefield. The different viewpoint it gives, verses driving a car or bus through it, was truly unique. The guides we had were also wonderful and so were the horses.
