Horseback Riding

Explore the wilds of Barnsley Resort's 3,000 acres of North Georgia landscape on horseback, riding through the open fields and wooded trails surrounding the resort. From a guided wilderness ride to a lesson in the corral, our experienced trail guides welcome riders of all abilities.

Whether it's a romantic wilderness ride complete with picnic or an introduction to horses, adventures on horseback are one of our most popular activities and an escape to the country just a short drive from Atlanta. For younger cowboys and cowgirls, horse painting holds a particular appeal along with children's rides in the corral.
