Horseback Riding Minnesota

Some of the best places for horseback riding in Minnesota are the many miles of trails in our Minnesota State Parks.

You can ride for almost 1,000 miles on horse trails in our state parks and explore our diverse terrain from prairie to forest to lakeside and hill country.

On each of our state park pages we offer information about horse trails and horse camps available. We have a list below of specific state parks that have horse trails and camps.

Not every state park has horse riding availability however you will find that many do. 

You will need a horse pass to ride the state park trails. You can get  a pass from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
