Horseback Riding in Big Bear

Because the region was a both a mining and tourist hot spot in the 19th century, many excellent trails and bridle paths weave through the mountains.  Visitors who come to Big Bear often come with their own horse and trailers. While you can't keep your horses at your rental property, you can board them at nearby stables.

Horse Rentals

There is only one facility renting horses, the Baldwin Lake stables and petting zoos, where kids can experience close encounters of the cute kind. Experienced guides will lead you over the historic Pacific Crest Trail for one hour, two hour, half day or sunset rides. They even suggest private guided tours for “special occasions.” Pop the question on a pony, perhaps? This will give you the thrill you're looking for when you think of horseback riding in real Western Style.

You will head along a wide variety of terrains, on several trails, all with spectacular vistas. Don't forget your camera. These rides are geared to the experience of the rider so even a novice can climb aboard and "giddup".

Space is limited as are the times, so be sure to reserve your horse rentals well in advance of the date and time you wish to go. Horseback riding is definitely a fun family activity and something everyone should experience at least once when visiting Big Bear
