Horseback Rides on the Gettysburg Battlefield.

The most amazing Licensed Guided Battlefield Tour on Horseback in Gettysburg.

  • 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.

    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  Great time!! I had my 11yo nephew and they made sure he was comfortable and enjoying the experience. This is a completely different way to experience Gettysburg. If you haven't done this it is a MUST for every trip! It will change your perspective on the events of the battle.

    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 5  I took my little brothers who traveled up from Texas on this Horse Back trail ride & I have to say this was such an amazing experience. The cost was well within reason. The tour guide was amazing. & I hope to one day do this trip again.

    review rating 5  Loved every minute of this ride! Educational fun. It was "so cool!" Our guide, Andie D., is a seasoned- pro; a terrific storyteller. Mary Ellen and Trevor kept us all safe. Boss Zach was easy-going; yet, happy to help with anything the riders and/or horses needed. I immediately wanted to sign up for another trail ride with them. A Class Act.

    review rating 5  This is was an incredible experience. I cannot say enough about the staff and the tour guide. They were incredibly professional, kind, and cheerful. It is clear that they take great pride in making sure that you have a great experience. Also, the horses are very well trained and gentle. I would highly recommend this experience and found it to be a real value in addition to being fun and informative.

  • 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  I went on a walking tour of the Baltimore Street area that focused on the history of Gettysburg and the experience of the civilians during the Civil War. I was the only one to show up on a hot morning, but Ken Rich conducted a great tour, anyway. He was incredibly enthusiastic and informative, had lots of interesting stories to tell, and took the history all the way back to the settlement of the area, which was unexpected and very much appreciated. I'd been wanting to take one of these tours for several years but was never in town when one was offered. Am glad my schedule finally worked out--was worth the wait and I'd definitely do another tour with Ken in the future. He offers quite a few different ones on various topics, including one that focuses on the Civil War fighting that occurred in the streets of town--so probably something of interest available for everyone who's interested in history.

    review rating 5  This was my first visit to Gettysburg and I am glad I chose this tour by horseback. The staff was great. Every horse was well behaved. And the information given on the tour was outstanding. Seeing the battleground from horseback gives a new perspective to the logistics of the armies and the terrain the encountered. I highly recommend this tour!

  • 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  Three of us recently visited and enjoyed this amazing experience. The staff were the nicest, friendliest, funny and above all thoughtful folks. Our guide Andi, was informative, enthusiastic, and so funny. I appreciated the ear buds so that each of us could easily hear our guide. The horses were friendly and easy to handle. Our tour lasted the full 2 hours and more. This was the highlight of our vacation. It is so easy to give this experience 5 stars! I would highly recommend this tour and experience for anybody wanting to learn about the Civil War in an authentic way. This was such a cool way to see the battlefield.

    review rating 5  The staff is so amazing, very friendly and knowledgeable. I am so glad I booked here and not one of the others. I am here on a work trip and had the day off and wanted to see Gettysburg and love horses. This was by far the best way to see it. Where you start it right at the start if one of the parks entrances so when you leave you are ready to drive around the park. I will for sure be coming back and riding with this group again. Thank you ladies!!!

  • review rating 5  Just took this tour with my sisters and two grandchildren, loved it. The tour guides were awesome and very patient with my grandson that never rode before. We have started a tradition in our family to do this twice a year and each time more family members come. Thanks so much for a wonderful day and my horse daisy was a gem. Teresa Stickell

    review rating 5  My oldest son has a passion for learning about the past of our nation, with that being said, the history buff he is turning to into, we decided to spend a day together to learn more about Gettysburg. One of the adventures of our day was the tour of the battlefield via horse drawn carriage. Eric, our tour guide was so knowledgeable, he kept my almost 10 year old entertained the entire two hours of the tour. Bill with his horses Fred and George provided some entertainment, via jokes and stories, along the way as well. Would totally recommend the horse tour to others!

    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!
