Best Wishes to everyone for a Happy and Healthy 2014!

This our 30th year of taking people in the Adirondack Wilderness on horseback. So we are offering some great savings, 50% off on all long rides purchased before 3/31! Our Discounts for the Veterans, active or not are always available!

For everyone who rode early last year, we had such a wet spring, it caused the first part of my trail to have some deep muddy spots. I would like everyone to know it was repaired with two tractor trailer loads of driveway mix, other parts of the trail were also repaired. Taking as many people with disabilities as I do it’s important to maintain all of my trails. You will see farther down this page, 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,loss of a lower limb it’s endless, giving them 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 their’s so many other activities available in our area,camping, 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 to make you want to come back!

My name is Joshua Swart and I am a USMC-E5. The horse ride was very relaxing, quiet and therapeutic. If you have ever thought about it “JUST DO IT”. You will never regret it and always remember it.

I would like to thank everyone for your support over all these 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.  10% of all long rides booked at full price early will go towards the purchase of the paraplegic saddles.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 26 years of working with people with disabilities. I have tried for several years to take a few horses to Sarasota, Fl in the winter to be able to work with adults and children with disabilities. Also not far from Sarasota is Myakka State Park, it’s one of the States  larger bird sanctuary’s on the west coast of Florida and they have a lot of new facilities for horses with 14 miles of maintained horse trails.

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.

Some big news is this year we will be opening a stable in the North Creek area which is  about 15 minutes from Gore Mountain Ski area.  A good friend Colin Maury’s Farm is near the town of Minerva. Collin will insure that you have a safe and wonderful experience.  They have some beautiful areas to ride and if you are in the area or are going to be up to Gore ski area why not also enjoy an hour or so horseback ride.  The woods are so beautiful this time of year with the snow hanging on the pines and the silence and solitude like no other.  This kind of peace is hard to find anywhere.  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.

We offer some great deals on gift certificates and more discounts for vets, which includes of the long sleeve shirts shown above, all profits of shirt sales go to the purchase of paraplegic saddles.. On the purchase of four rides without shirts it’s close to a 50 % savings until 3/31 or you can purchase the shirts directly at $15.00 and all the profit goes to “helping us purchase the Paraplegic Saddles. Thanks again for every ones support this year ! John Evans
