We rent a horse and buggy for a hour ride and this was by far my kids favorite activity on Mackinaw. The stable makes it easy to rent and to be honest, the horses know where they are going. So much better than hiring someone...More

We rented a horse drawn carriage; where we drove a carriage on our own! We had the pleasure of having Babe a black percheron draft horse. Jack's crew were amazing! It was an enjoyable day and quite the experience!

What a great way to view the island!! We had such a great time riding horses. Taylor was an outstanding guide for our family. Very knowledgeable about the island and the horses we were all riding. Lady was a great horse!
