GEC’s unique location in the Gunpowder State Park makes it a wonderful area to enjoy the park on horseback. We love visitors and welcome new faces to our facility. We offer miles of trails for avid trail rider or hikers.
We ask that visitors do not feed the horses on the premises and all dogs must be leashed at all times.
At this time GEC does not offer guided trail rides or horse rentals. Trail rides are available only to students who take regular lessons at GEC.
A list of other facilities that offer guided trail rides or horse rentals can be found at this link: Saddle_UP_web.
