Horseback Riding


 Enjoy the out-west atmosphere with back-east convenience for some of the finest western-style horseback riding in the area. Located just fifty miles west of the Capital Beltway, the Marriott Ranch offers a variety of horse-related activities, none more popular than our ninety-minute trail rides across parts of our beautiful 4,200-acre working cattle ranch. Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, riders will enjoy themselves whether riding through pastures, across creeks, in peaceful woods or among grazing cattle.
