Gettysburg Horseback Tours on the battlefield with Confederate Trails of Gettysburg


 

We could not come up with a way to really convey to you what an amazing experience it is to Ride the Gettysburg Battlefield on horseback… then we were sent this amazing vlog by Live Alaska that puts all the awesome into perspective.

If you are trying to find the most amazing gift to give this holiday season be sure to watch Lilly’s dream come true and give the Gift of Gettysburg with a Horse Tours of Gettysburg Gift Card.  

  • review rating 5  For first time or novice horseback riders and equestrians alike; for Civil War buffs or those only with a casual historical knowledge; Confederate Trails of Gettysburg provided a safe, balanced, and memorable experience that will make you want it NOT to be a "once in a lifetime" event,simply because you'll want to do it again. Veteran horse handlers provide security and guidance without smothering the moment with excessive intrusion into the historical portion of the tour expertly-but pleasantly and informally shared by a park ranger who shares the tales of Gettysburg as if he's relaying family anecdotes. Well done. If you're "on the fence" about trying this; hop off the fence and onto the trails!

    review rating 4  I tell you the team/family running this horse trail tour is awesome. Seeing the scope/scale of the battlefield from this vantage comes as close it can to replicating the sights from the actual battle. The only reason I give this a single tic lower is the guide. The dude was super knowledgeable but my wife and I thought he could have painted a better picture. He was a bit random at times rather than telling a story about the immediate around you. Small dinge, his knowledge of the people and terrain was profound...but know the audience. We had kids with us who started to ignore him.

    review rating 5  We had so much fun even if it was kind of hot out. The horses were all so sweet and the staff was awesome! My oldest daughter who rode Carl has emotional/mental issues and thanks to the caring staff did just great. We plan on getting her involved with therapy riding lessons now. My family cant wait to take another tour with this company.

  • review rating 5  An outstanding experience from start to finish. The staff was very friendly and efficient. they went over the rules and the tour in detail. Andy, the tour guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. The guides, Trevor and Rachael, helped us with any questions we had about our horses. All the horses were incredibly well behaved, which was a major relief to me - someone who has never ridden horseback before. I rode Emily and she was an angel and fun. I had a blast, I would gladly take this tour again!!

    review rating 5  My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful horse drawn carriage ride through Gettysburg. This wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for them adding tours that night for me. I checked their website, and they didn't have tours available that evening. I reached out via Facebook messenger, and they were kind enough to add tours for that evening. I would definitely recommend checking them out!

    review rating 5  The horses very selected for each rider and the wranglers did a very good job with this. The tour guide was very informative and engaged the riders into his presentation. The ride through the battle fields was very educational and everyone in my riding group enjoyed the tour. I would ride with this company again.
