The Stables

Nestled behind the West Baden Springs Hotel, The Stables at French Lick Resort are home to 27 horses who have each been carefully selected and trained for a minimum of two years by our stables manager. Among them are trail horses for the eight miles of scenic horseback riding trails, the resort’s two carriage horses and ponies that provide rides for the little ones. The stables also offers a gift shop with Western-style items and souvenirs and is open from 9am - 4pm daily. Please call (812) 936-9300 (Ext. 7246) for more information.
