Silver Lake State Park Shoreline Horseback Riding Season
November 1 - November 14
For the past four years, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources has been working hand and hand with the Equine Trails Subcommittee to explore opportunities for shoreline horseback riding along Michigan’s Great Lakes. In the past, pilot rides have been hosted at Muskegon and Silver Lake state parks.
In 2021, we partnered with the Michigan Horse Council to host a 2-week event as part of a pilot program to simulate what a riding season would look like at Silver Lake State Park.
This mutually beneficial partnership is providing an opportunity for more than 800 equestrians to ride the Lake Michigan shoreline, connect with MHC and DNR and explore a new region of Michigan on horseback.
