FALL IS IN THE AIR AND THE LEAVES ARE ALREADY CHANGING, ARE YOU READY TO ENJOY ONE OF THE MOST PEACEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL WAYS TO RELAX THERE IS, A RIDE THROUGH THE ADIRONDACK WILDERNESS ON THE BACK OF A GREAT HORSE !
This is our 30th year of taking people in the Adirondack Wilderness on horseback. We do have Discounts available for the Veterans, active or not, that are always available!
For everyone who rode early last year, when we had such a wet spring that caused the first part of my trail to have some deep muddy spots. I would like everyone to know it was repaired with a lot of work and a couple tractor trailer loads of driveway mix, other parts of the trail were also repaired. We want to let as many people with disabilities know as possible that we will do our best to get them on a horse. Another reason how important it is to maintain all of my trails. You will see farther down this page, we have shirts for sale and all profits from the sale of my new shirts will go towards the purchase of paraplegic saddles. We are a member of the “Paralyzed Veterans of America”. These saddles can also help anyone with balance problems, like MS, diabetes, the loss of a lower limb use, it’s endless.We are to give everyone a chance to see the Adirondack wilderness from the back of a great horse. We would be more than happy to try and help you find the type of lodging, and there is so many other activities available in ours and the surrounding areas, kayaking, whitewater rafting, hiking, golf, seaplane rides the great “Adirondack Museum” in what many consider the off season. Call “315-390-4005″, with any questions, in New York and surrounding states “1-800-HORSEBACK” More than anything we really want your stay in our area make you want to come back!

Joshua told me he suffered from PDSD, I DIDN’T ADD IT AT THE TIME, If you are suffering from this, it would be my pleasure to take you or a group, on a ride to a wilderness lake to see what the magic of being on a great horse in the wilderness can do for seeing the peace of mind in life that can still be found, just call me, if you don’t have the money don’t let that stop you from calling, trust me it’s the closes to true magic of finding peace that there is. If you don’t have the money and know others that don’t I would be happy to set aside a week day to take you all out and may be able to set up for transportation. If someone wanted to put something together please don’t hesitate to contact me. This is my 28th year of working with every kind of disability, I’ve seen 50 year old people with CP speak when none of there care givers thought he even understood language. And it was him telling the cafe giver he wasn’t getting off the horse.
I would like to thank everyone for your support over all t.hese years. Many of you are aware that I work with people of all ages with all types disabilities. With this past spring being so wet, making it another short season. And donating the amount rides I do, made it tough to save enough money to purchase two or more paraplegic saddles. This year I want to work more with paraplegics, with veterans of coarse, but anyone who has difficulties sitting a horse without the extra support a paraplegic saddle can offer.
I am also looking to raise money to purchase saddles for paraplegics so those with more serious disabilities can enjoy a ride. Any donations someone makes towards the saddles would also be welcomed. The many Veterans I spoke with this year stated how much working with paraplegic vets could help them and with these saddles it would allow them to experience that ride on a horse, some without having to have spotters on either side of the horse.
I have some news for all the people who have rode and supported us all these years. Coming into 2014 makes it 30 years I have been running Adirondack Saddle Tours and 28 years of working with people with disabilities. I want military vets active or not to know we will do whatever necessary for them to enjoy a ride. I offer more discounts for vets and there family’s, and I will do my best to work with anyone with special needs.
The Adirondack wilderness is one of the most beautiful places in the world and you are able to see so much more of it from the back of a fine horse making it that much more enjoyable.
I have a wonderful group of horses and guides that are both very patient. We will work hard to make sure you feel comfortable stopping, turning, and feeling confident of controlling your horse before we leave the yard.
If you are someone that may be a bit timid or younger, we will put a lead on your horse to be sure you feel safe. To see some of our recent rides take a look at our Facebook link below with our more recent guests.
