Exploring a destination by horseback is more than just a means of moving through space; it’s an entirely unique way of engaging with it, too. But daylong rides through rolling meadows or forested landscapes aren’t the only appeal for equestrians—expert, or otherwise—and properties across the U.S. deliver with top-notch facilities, services, and talent. From specialty clinics with world-renown names in the Hamptons to unconventional experiences (yoga on horseback, anyone?) in Virginia to riding and wine tasting pairings in California, there’s nothing dusty about these 11 refined getaways, which pair five-star amenities with top-notch training, and a little touch of the rustic, now and again.
