Our Horses

Meet Our Horses!

These gorgeous animals are the true reason that all of our guests have the safest, most memorable experience on their horseback tour through the Gettysburg Battlefield. More than 1,000,000 horses and mules were killed during the Civil War. A wonderful way to pay tribute to them is to follow in their exact footsteps on the hallowed grounds of Gettysburg.

We are proud to say the majority of the horses we have here at the National Riding Stables are rescues, saved directly from slaughter pens and removed from abusive or mistreated situations. We love giving them a new home and a second chance at life to be cared for and loved. All of our horses are gentle and perfectly trained to be suited for non-riders and riders, from beginner to advanced.
