Our goal at the National Riding Stables is to provide you with an unparalleled experience that you cannot obtain anywhere else.  We offer a unique combination of:

  • a horseback tour of America’s most famous battlefield
  • expert Licensed Battlefield Guides who bring the battle alive for you
  • a comfortable and enjoyable ride on one of our gentle, well-trained horses
  • superb customer service before, during, and after the ride

We offer guided horseback tours of Gettysburg National Military park between March and November each year.

Our 2-hour historical tour with a Licensed Battlefield Guide and our 1-hour scenic tour are our most popular, although we can provide custom-length tours up to 7 hours across the battlefield’s 17-mile system of horse trails.

Our tours only use gentle, well-mannered horses selected and trained by the experienced wranglers of the National Riding Stables, who will accompany you on the ride.

Tours are available for riders 7 years and older and up to 240 pounds in weight.  Tours are offered daily between March and November, weather permitting.
