Equestrian

Tahoe Donner Equestrian Center is now closed for the season.

Come explore the Sierra Nevada mountains by horseback. View forests and high mountain meadows filled with wildflowers. Catch a glimpse of the local wildlife; a deer with her young, a bear hunting for grubs or a hawk circling in the sky.

Bring your toddler out for a pony ride. Join us at a Saturday night BBQ and indulge in a customized gourmet burger while you watch the kids play dress up, roast marshmallows and take a swing at the piñata.
