Nebraska Horseback Riding

Horseback Riding in Nebraska

There are hundreds of opportunities for horseback riding throughout the state, whether you are an experienced rider or a novice. Some Nebraska B&Bs and Unique Lodgings offer horseback riding packages using their own horses, or in affiliation with a nearby stable or ranch. Others are located near great horseback riding, making it easy to incorporate a ride into a vacation without making it a central part of your holiday.

Fort Robinson State Park, in the northwestern part of the state, has almost seventy miles of trails to explore. The Cowboy Trail crosses the state, providing over three hundred miles suitable for horseback riding. While Branched Oak Lake near Lincoln has a more intimate setting, with almost ten miles of trails open for exploration. Enjoy a hearty breakfast at a Nebraska Bed and Breakfast or Unique Lodging, then jump in the saddle and enjoy the ride.

The Great Plains of Nebraska conjure images of herds of wild horses, Indians on horseback, and cowboys. Indeed, it is hard to consider the American west without also thinking of horses. We must thank the Spanish for that, for they brought horses with them when they first explored this country in the fifteen hundreds. Native Americans who lived here were enthralled by the horses they saw, and quickly adapted to make the horse an integral part of their lifestyles and identities. Hunting, trading, and the way they engaged in war were all altered thanks to the horse.

Meriwether Lewis and William Clark lead their party along the eastern border of the state over two hundred years ago, and as Americans were lured west by the promise of land, wealth and adventure, many of them passed through and settled in what is now Nebraska. They traveled on horseback and in horse-drawn wagons. Indeed, wagon ruts from that time are still visible in parts of the state, along the old Oregon Trail. Nowadays you can travel by car and stay comfortably in a Nebraska Lodge, but you can still experience the thrill of horseback riding in Nebraska.

If you are looking for something different for your next vacation, we hope you’ll consider exploring Nebraska’s Horseback Riding Opportunities.
