Deep Creek Lake's family-friendly ranch invites your family to ride with ours. Take the free barn tour and meet the horses up close and personal. Pony rides are available for all ages of children. Or round the family up for a trail ride. Private trail rides are also available. Our trails wind among gently sloping hills and tranquil streams. A grazing herd of Holstein cattle dot the landscape in black and white. The steady clip clop of your horse's hooves relaxes you. Come feel like a kid again! End your evening around a bonfire among the stars! Pack your cooler and grab the marshmallows for a hayride out through the dark night sky lit by bright stars. Enjoy some quiet time around the bonfire before calling it a day! A great family experience to remember til next time! Bring your child's next Birthday Party to the Barn! Private area to enjoy your picnic followed by Pony Rides for the little ones! During Winter months we offer one-horse open sleigh rides - snuggle down under the warm blanket with your family and friends to watch the beautiful snowy landscape glide by. Private sleigh rides are also available.
