If you are a new to the Island, we strongly suggest you first visit the Island first 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 first, then your horse stall(s), and the horse ferry, well in advance.
