Welcome to Honora Bay Riding Stable



The best way to experience the breathtaking scenery and wildlife of  Northern Ontario's Manitoulin Island is from the back of a horse!


Located in the heart of beautiful Manitoulin Island, Honora Bay Riding Stable offers an exciting horseback riding adventure you won't soon forget!

We provide a variety of trail rides and overnight excursions on trails through the surrounding forests, hilltop fields, and along the Niagara Escarpment.

We are a short 15 minute drive from Little Current, and central to the island's many attractions.

Over 20 well trained horses are waiting to take you out on trails led by our experienced guides who carry first aid gear and communication technology to ensure your safety. Whether you have never seen a horse in person or you're a seasoned rider, we've got a fun experience waiting for you!

In addition to trail rides we offer year round riding lessons with a certified CHA instructor. Take a tour through our website and explore all the options we have to offer. And don't forget our July and August daily Summer Horse Camp for kids aged 8-15! See you at the barn!

Trail Guidelines

To ensure your safety and enjoyment while on our trail rides, Honora Bay Riding Stable observes the following rules:
  • All of our riders must wear approved riding helmets, which we provide, and closed toed shoes. 
  • Long, non-slippery pants such as jeans and a comfortable t-shirt or sweater are also recommended. Please dress for the weather.
  • Purses and other large or baggy items cannot be carried on the horse as they may restrict your ability to ride. Small cameras are fine to bring as long as they are not hung around your neck. Please ask your guide about the best way to carry your belongings.
  • With the exception of pony rides, all riders must be over the minimum age restriction for the specific trail ride you will be taking. Please refer to the ride's web page (available in the main menu) for age restrictions.

Your experienced trail guide will give you instructions on how to ride so that both you and your horse will have an enjoyable ride.

Our guides also carry first aid kits and cell phones for your safety on every ride. Please feel free to ask questions if you have any concerns.






Trail Ride rates depend on the duration of the ride; from $45 (1 hour ride) to $325 (overnight adventure). All of our prices include HST. Please refer to our Main Menu for more information on each ride.

Please note that we accept cash or credit (NOT debit) for all trail rides. Credit cards will be subject to a small added fee.
