Top Family Adventures at Salamander Resort & Spa
Your stay would not be complete without a visit to our beautiful equestrian center featuring a 14,000 square-foot stable with 22 stalls, nine beautiful paddocks and a spectacular outdoor riding arena. Schedule a riding lesson or participate in one of our many programs like Paint-a-Pony where children learn about horse markings and breeds.
Plus, don’t miss the chance to meet the sweetest member of our team, Cupcake the miniature horse. When not in the equestrian center, she joins guests on The Grand Lawn every Friday and Saturday to enjoy pets and photo-ops with all her fans. Parents can also indulge the special Cupcake Cocktail from Gold Cup, topped with rainbow sprinkles, of course.
