Hit the Trail

Where the trails begin, and adventure never ends...

Alaska Horse Adventures takes pride in serving the visitors and residents of Alaska. We offer a very unique horseback ride: from beginners and first time riders to the advanced horse person. We are thrilled to be able to take advantage of the great outdoors and adventures that Alaska has to offer!  

Experience a four stage horseback ride on a lively, well trained horse.  While riding through the open woods with big cottonwood trees and a variety of native plants, be on the lookout for porcupines, birds, moose, and many little critters that often travel along the trail! After meandering through the woods, you’ll arrive at the beach of the river with a panoramic view of snow capped mountains, the Knik Glacier, and Pioneer Peak towering above the beautiful beach and sand dunes that stretch for miles along side the Knik River flowing from the Knik Glacier. Then, circle back through big meadows on the backside of the swamp lakes heading back to the ranch. 

Do you want an exciting, fast paced ride? Or perhaps, a calm, leisurely ride? Let us know your needs and wants, and we will try to accommodate you the best we can! From engagements, anniversaries, birthday parties, date ride, family enrichment, date packs, to horse-drawn nostalgia, Alaska Horse Adventures has it all. 

Can’t wait to have you join us!  

Seasoned Rider Reviews

Beautiful, picturesque!

Everything was perfect! Horses and sleigh were ready when we arrived, the weather was chilly but gorgeous and the two young boys did a great job taking care of us. From taking pictures to making hot cocoa.

What a memory!!!!

Amazingly professional and nice people!! Well cared for animals and nice place. We are locals but will be returning for another sleigh ride. I think we have found our annual family event and will also be bringing winter time visitors here as well. So worth the money even more. An experience you will soon not forget.

Amazing Adventure

It was drizzling rain, a little foggy and the adventure was outstanding. Our guide was calm and confident. This is a must-do adventure while visiting Alaska. Winter or Summer this was fantastic. I am looking forward to a 2nd visit after the first snow. I hear the sleigh rides are breathtaking.

Amazing afternoon activity!

We had a group of 9, great horses, great guides, 3 horses had foals who walked with us which made for a nice addition. We did the 1.5-hour session but was told we could have spent more time at the beach if we had done the 3-hour session, which in hindsight would have been great too. Very diverse scenery and I’d highly recommend!

Best Ride Ever!

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by our guides who were top notch. You can tell right off the bat; all horses are well cared for and trained extremely well not only by the bridle but voice commands as well! Hands down one of the best rides to date and we have done a great deal of excursions! Thanks so much for the awesome time and look forward to our next time around!

Horsawesome!

Awesome trip! The owner really treats every rider great. Takes pictures if you bring your camera or phone. Could not believe the views once you get to the Knik river. Ever want to ride a horse through water... yep, you can do that too! It's awesome!
