Where can I go horseback riding?
The best riding in the area is likely not to be found in Weirs Beach, but in the beautiful nearby mountain ranges. In the Belknap mountains, 15 minutes from Weirs Beach, there are numerous riding trails to be explored.
Over in the Ossipee range, 45 minutes from Weirs Beach, there are miles and miles of trail riding adventure. Beginning in 2010, horseback riding, after a decade-long absence, is once again being offered at the Castle in the Clouds (603) 476-5900 x211. Mountain Side Trails (603) 539-5510 also offers riding in the Ossipee range. High Meadows Farms (603) 539-6052 in Moultonborough offers trail rides, riding lessons and pony parties.
There are also many stables in the area surrounding Weirs Beach. NH Equestrians.com lists 3 stables in each of the nearby towns of Gilford, Meredith, and Belmont.
