ALL THINGS HORSES

A narrated, horse-drawn carriage tour is the iconic Mackinac Island activity. Yet, it’s just one of many equine activities to enjoy in a land that has been car-free forever. You can go horseback riding on a guided or unguided tour, rent a private carriage for an intimate ride, even drive your own horse and buggy! Or you can visit with the horses in the barn and find a new friend. Plus, Mackinac Island is home to two museums showcasing antique carriages.
