Wade, guests have ridden in jeans, shorts, closed-toe shoes and sandals with no issues. Just use your best judgement and feel free to call 580-223-8172 if you have any questions. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Wade Robinson on 05/18/15

Are any special type shoes or clothes required?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 04/17/15

Ashley, unfortunately, for safety reasons, no child under the age of two is allowed to ride double. While the trails are not especially rugged, there are some places where you'll need both hands to hang on! If you have any further questions, please call 580-223-8172. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Amber, unfortunately, for safety reasons, no child under the age of two is allowed to ride double. While our trails are not especially rugged, there are some places where you'll need both hands to hang on! If you have any further questions, please give me a call! :) ~ Amber (580)223-8172

Amber, for that information you will need to speak with the Lake Murray Riding Stables directly at 580-223-8172. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Amber on 01/26/15

Hello... I have a group of ten that will be wanting to ride with you. Quick question. There will be a 6 month old baby. Is there any way possible begging and pleading that the child can accompany an experienced adult rider in the group?


From TravelOK.com Staff on 10/02/14

Ashley, thanks for your comment. The hours did change this week, and the information you see under the 'Hours' tab on this page is correct. We're sorry the photos you saw of sunsets were confusing. We were just trying to show what the surrounding area looked like. However, if you are interested in a twilight ride, that is offered to groups by reservation. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Lake Murray Riding Stables at 580-223-8172. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Ashley on 10/01/14

From TravelOK.com Staff on 08/01/14

Ashley, thanks for choosing Lake Murray State Park for your staff retreat! The riding stables are usually open every day through Labor Day, but they did have to close this week due to all the rain. It's just a safety precaution to keep the horses from slipping in mud. It may be dry enough that they'll be able to open back up tomorrow, but we can't say for sure. The 580-223-8172 is still the best way to reach them, so your best bet is to call back later tomorrow or early next week. If you have any general park questions, please feel free to call the Lake Murray State Park office at 580-223-4044. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Ashley Dubriwny on 08/01/14

Hi, my organization is staying at Lake Murray for our staff retreat. I'd like to discuss scheduling an activity for the group but I haven't had success reaching anyone on the phone number this week. Is there another number or email I can use to speak with someone soon? Thanks!

Amy, the cost is $4 for children 2 to 6 years old riding double with adult, and $20 for adults and children six and over. For more information, please call 580-223-8172. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Planning a trip to Lake Murray Thanksgiving weekend. According to your season, it is March to November. Does that include the month of November or ends in October? Also will the stables be open the holiday weekend? Thanks for your reply.


From katey on 11/19/12

Iwish it was open on weekdays too But love the rides. And pony


From TravelOK.com Staff on 10/18/12

Kristin, we're very sorry you are unhappy. We've updated the Lake Murray Riding Stables information to reflect that horseback & hay rides are available seasonally on the weekends by appointment only. We hope you'll reconsider visiting Lake Murray State Park. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Kristin on 10/17/12

This is not correct info. Evidently, the stables only are open on Saturdays and that is a maybe. No no will call back so you can't book anything. Lake Murray, you lost us as campers because you say you offer stuff to do and then don't have it. Hay ride?? really, when?
