There are many ways to explore the sprawling, densely-forested wilderness surrounding Beavers Bend State Park, including a canoe trip, an ATV ride, or a fly fishing expedition. However, there’s nothing quite like galloping through McCurtain County atop a majestic steed who instinctively knows these woodlands like that back of their hoof. Horseback riding in Broken Bow remains a popular mid-day pursuit for families and couples alike, as it’s equally exciting yet undeniably romantic. Stride through the countryside like it’s 1907 during your long-awaited getaway via Blue Beaver Luxury Cabins.
Horseback Riding in Broken Bow: 2 Local Stables
Admittedly, Riverman Trail Rides has a monopoly on Broken Bow’s horseback riding scene. While they offer a bevy of services, including fishing, wagon rides, and engagement photography, there’s no denying the allure of a three-hour Riverman ride alongside the meandering Glover River amid some of the most peaceful preserved lands in the state. Couples can book a “Sweetheart Ride,” which costs a mere $325 and includes a bluff-side ride, private campfire, and wine and cheese sampling. Meanwhile, the “Sunset Ride” is a unique way to say “goodbye” to a glorious day in McCurtain County. Horseback riding in Broken Bow has never been more romantic!
Beavers Bend Depot & Trail Rides is a worthy secondary option, especially for those with kids. The Depot’s 45-minute, kid-friendly trail ride covers approximately 2.5 miles. Children as young as five years old can ride their own pony. It’s a wonderful introduction to the sport—one that can be combined with a cotton candy scramble, a carousel ride, and an authentic train ride through a wilderness preserve.
Other Stables and Alternative Adventures
If you’re hoping to branch out a bit, particularly north of Broken Bow Lake, we also recommend the guiding services at A to Z Guest Ranch and Glover River Trail Rides. Glover River is the least expensive option in the region, while A to Z offers the lengthiest excursions within an hour of Hochatown. An hour or two of horseback riding in Broken Bow goes hand in hand with several other complementary adventures, such as a kayak trip down the Lower Mountain Fork River, a hike through Beavers Bend State Park, or a boat ride in Broken Bow Lake. Polish off each marvelous day of adventure with some fine wine and gourmet eats before retiring to your lavish Broken Bow cabin.
