This is the 3rd time we've done horse trail riding at Lawton Stables. The staff is great and very helpful. The one hour trail ride was perfect for the kids. We hung out by the farm/petting zoo area while we waited.

Unfortunately there is no beach riding on Hilton Head. We hope you visit us though! Our trails go through the Sea Pines Forest Preserve, a beautiful setting.
