BRINGING YOUR HORSE TO MACKINAC

Board Your Horse at the Mackinac Community Equestrian Center

 

Horseback riding on Mackinac Island is an incredible experience! Here at the Mackinac Island Community Equestrian Center, we provide both long and short term boarding. Board is $60 per horse per night and includes:

  • Hay, three times per day

  • Supplements and grain provided

         by owner and per owner request

  • Access to fresh water 24/7

  • Stall cleaning once per day

  • Use of large outdoor arena

  • Use of round pen

  • Use of wash rack

  • space for storing tack

  • restrooms

  • Guided Tour of facility

  • Maps of Mackinac Trails

  • Access to over 60+ miles of trails

If you are a new visitor to the Island, we strongly suggest you first visit the Island without your horse. This will allow you to understand the Island’s unique set of horsey challenges (bikes, carriages, crowds, noise). Please check out our Bringing Your Horse to Mackinac Island guidelines to help you prepare properly for your visit. We recommend making reservations for your rooms, horse stall(s), and the horse ferry well in advance.
