Reputable stables– including some right in the State Parks, like Cacapon and Canaan Valley, or onsite at destinations like The Resort at Glade Springs and The Greenbrier– can match your skills to a suitable mount. Expertly guided equestrian adventures range from an easy-going hour in the saddle at Autumn Breeze Farms to a moonlight ride or overnight excursion at Pipestem Resort State Park.

Horse camps like Mountwood Park and Double C at Camp Creek State Park let horse and rider vacation together.
