Tahoe Donner Equestrian Center

Offers trail rides, pony rides, horse boarding, riding lessons, tack shop, Horsemanship Camps and BBQ Rides.

Tahoe-Donner Equestrian Center’s  experienced wranglers and trail-wise horses will take you on a ride through high mountain forests and upland meadows or down into the lush Euer Valley full of wild flowers, grazing cattle and icy cold mountain streams. Stands of quaking aspen, willows, pines and fir, and thickets of manzanita are home to the wildlife of the High Sierra. California black bears, mule deer, chickarees and red-tail hawks are frequently spotted during rides. The chatter of squirrels, the whir of a quail’s wings as it flees into the brush, the occasional screech of a hawk, along with the whisper of wind in the trees all blend into a background of natural music punctuated with the hoof beats of your mount. You’ll sway in your saddle, relaxed, with the warm sun on your shoulders; for a brief hour or two, take a break from the electronic world. The only communication devices needed are the reins guiding your horse.
