The kids (and Mom and Dad!) will talk about this special morning at The Stables at the Omni Mount Washington Resort for years to come! Visit to interact with our Stable-Master, Luke Thorne and all of his great staff as they show you the ins and outs of daily operation at the Stables. After a quick introduction, get ready to get your hands dirty while you assist the kind staff with horse care and maintenance, all while building up your confidence to "saddle-up" and take a ride of your own.

This experience begins with a hands-on course in Barn etiquette from how the horses are fed and cared for, to how they are saddled and shod. It concludes with a short, controlled Pony ride around the Stables Corral. For more information please call 603-278-3388.
