Heritage Hills Horseback Riding is located 15 miles west of Marquette,
and south of Highway US-41 & M-28 in the north central Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
At Heritage Hills, you will experience Michigan’s Upper Peninsula like our ancestors did…by horseback! Our main route is situated on 21 acres of the original Wawonowin Country Club built in the late 1800’s. You’ll learn lots of interesting things about this historic area where iron ore was first discovered - you’ll feel like you stepped back in time and you won’t believe you are only minutes from civilization!
You’ll ride one of our friendly horses through a variety of terrain:
• Virgin hardwood Forests & open meadows
• To our own lagoon and other wetlands.
• Greenways and Fairways of the old golf course
• Old apple orchards - pick apples late August!
• Vibrant fall colors late Sept. thru mid-Oct.
The horse may have written history, but our horses can show it to you!
Fun for the whole family!
We also offer Birthday Parties and pony rides
Summer Horse Camp every Friday!
Winter sleigh rides.
Reservations are recommended.
**Equine assisted life guidance and coaching** practicing the EAGALA model.
