  • For $89, you get a two-hour moonlit horseback ride (a $180 value).<p>

Horseback rides take place in small groups of approximately eight riders.

The experienced horse handlers at Boarding On The Lake lead equestrians of all skill levels aged 10 and older on scenic 5- to 6-mile rides over the historic Pioneer Express Trail and around the shores of Folsom Lake. Instructors pair riders with friendly steeds upon arrival, and then lead a quick, comprehensive lesson on horsemanship technique, safety, and how to properly clip the feathers from horses’ ankles before they sprout into dangerous wings. After galloping over the sandy beaches of Folsom Lake, riders return to the boarding facilities for an outdoor picnic of sandwiches, drinks, and dessert. Moonlit tours depart after sunset and travel a similar route as the daytime tours, wandering through eerily quiet nighttime landscapes disrupted only by the soft impact of horses’ hooves and a chorus of disturbing licking noises from owls eating lollipops in the trees. Participants should wear long pants, and boots are encouraged, though tennis shoes are also acceptable.

Boarding On The Lake

Boarding On The Lake is positioned right off Folsom Lake, a short trot from the beach and located near hundreds of miles of trails. This prime location lets horse owners hop atop their horses and be on the trail in minutes, rather than spending hours hitching up a trailer to transport their steed to a spot with good riding. Dedicated staffers keep the stalls, covered paddocks, and other facilities shipshape, and Boarding On The Lake’s owners are onsite as often as possible to ensure that everything is working smoothly. They've also set up a picnic area where guests can sit down and eat their lunch, instead of grazing on the high-quality alfalfa and grass reserved for the horses.

Customer Reviews

Cal is such a great trail guide. He is informative, funny, select horses based in height and experience and is soooo good to look at. Definitely going to go back real soon
Duby C. · July 10, 2016
I loved the ride, the trail guide was great, helped the riders and allowed me (being a more experienced rider) to canter more than the other riders and even allowed me to jump over a few logs. I'd definitely recommend this place to ride and for great scenery!
