Guided horseback rides are a great introduction to the sport or way to spend an afternoon with the family. From the trails on Mill Mountain (less than 5 minutes from downtown Roanoke) to the more than 40 miles of trails at Carvins Cove, the equestrian trails you’ll find in the Roanoke Region offer great opportunities to saddle up. Find a guide, join a group or club, and make sure to check out our horseback riding trail tips.
