This Horseback Tour Through The Pennsylvania Countryside Will Enchant You In The Best Way
Ghosts of the past whisper throughout Gettysburg but none more than on the battlefield where the Battle of Gettysburg was fought. The epic Civil War battle, said to be the bloodiest in North American history, raged on from July 1-3, 1863. Today, the once bloody battlefield has given way to landmarks, memorials, and lush green countryside. Explore the past on this unforgettable horseback tour in Pennsylvania.
Horse Tours of Gettysburg allows visitors to explore the Gettysburg Battlefield on horseback.
The Confederate Trails of Gettysburg offers a 1.5 and a two hour tour. Both tours, ideal for riders of all skill levels, feature a Licensed Battlefield Guide.

Both tours give you an up close view of the sprawling countryside, now serene and lush with green, that once hosted the Battle of Gettysburg.
Highlights of the tour include the Virginia Monument, Trostle Farm (where the Union fought), and Spangler Farm.
You'll also enjoy sweeping views, from a distance, of Little Round Top and the Peach Orchard.
