Equestrian Center

Make horseback riding part of your summer 2017 plans!   Our Equestrian Center is open each summer from May through October. The Mountain Top is the only Vermont Resort, and one of only a handful of Resorts in New England, to offer a full equestrian program. Located on 350 beautiful acres, surrounded by thousands of acres of National Forest and overlooking a pristine lake, Mountain Top Resort is the perfect setting for a “Horseback Riding Vacation”.

Enjoy the spectacular property as you walk, trot or canter through mountain pastures, over miles of trails. Experienced rider or new in the saddle, our professional instructors will help you to improve your riding ability, English or Western, on your horse or one of ours. We will help you to create a personalized riding vacation to suit your needs and ability level, making it as varied and intensive as desired.
