Make horseback riding part of your summer 2018 plans! Our Equestrian Center is open each summer from Memorial Day weekend through October. 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 700 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”.
