Discover the Gettysburg Battlefield on a scenic horseback riding tour. Sit back and relax in your saddle as you take in the stunning nature surrounding you.

After meeting your horse and becoming acquainted with it, use your mounting block to hop on its back. Then, follow your horse wrangler on your outdoor adventure across the Battlefield. Take in the peaceful nature as your horse gently walks through it. Learn about horses and their integral part in the advancement of human history from your guide. Either learn a new skill or hone your existing one as you sit tall on your horse's back, paying attention to how it reacts to your movements and commands.

What people are saying about Gettysburg

This was a last minute trip. We wanted to do something different. Best decision. The entire ride was amazing. The guides were awesome. Michael is great. Very knowledgeable of the history. Able to answer all our questions. Being able to see from the certain points on horse back, to look out over the fields, amazing experience. This is a must do in my book. To see where the men actually were in the treeline. Things you definitely can not experience from your car or a tour bus. Mac said he had chills and goosbumps just imagining. Looking at paintings and pictures afterward I was able to better understand where they were in that time. Have to add Amanda and Ashley were great as well leading the ride and meeting up along the trail to make sure everyone is OK, and make sure horses have water for those concerned about that. Chief likes to sneak a bite to eat along the trail but was great none the less. Mac said Bo was great for the adventure.

We were first time riders. The guide team was amazing at helping us learn how to control the horses and we were riding in just a few minutes! Tour guides were very knowledgable of both the history and the horses. They also got a ton of fantastic pictures for us. I highly recommend!

Our guides were fantastic. Great horses, they actually loved their job and were not boring to ride! I had ghost recommend coming to Gettysburg to ride along side Keystone and their guides.

It’s was a great experience! The guides were so knowledgeable and friendly. It felt like you were riding horses with long time friends! Their hospitality was unbeatable!

A great way to explore the Gettysburg battlefield. The guides were friendly and accommodating. A slow paced ride and great exercise for the horse and rider.
