Martha’s Vineyard is full of beautiful winding trails, making it ideal for those who love to explore the outdoors. But why use two legs to get around, when you can use four? We’re talking legs of the equine variety. Horses are a fun and exciting way to explore the island, so why not saddle up and enjoy the ride?

At Arrowhead Farm, home to many of the Vineyard’s stoic steeds, you can take riding lessons or enjoy a relaxing pony ride. They have 36 acres of rolling hills and forests waiting to be explored.
