About Us

Family owned and operated since 2004, the Franconia Notch Stables takes pride in offering beautiful and safe horseback adventures in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Adam Stafford, born in Vermont, is the man behind the scenes. He has a true passion for horses and people and enjoys giving you the best horseback adventure possible. His son, Emmet, loves helping out around the barn; his favorite chore- delivering hay to the pasture via 4-wheeler. Every once in a while you may see his wife, Katie, saddling up a horse or mucking out a stall, as the business began with her back in 2004. Lastly, there's Estelle who is 2 and cannot wait to be your trail guide one day! 

We are so grateful for our customers, both old and new. We hope you LOVE your ride so much that you'll come back and see us year after year! (And don't be afraid to put in a horse request if you happen to fall in love out on the trail; it happens:) 

Thank you for your business, we truly appreciate it!

Adam, Katie, Emmet, and Estelle 

(Plus Pi, Tuckerman, Trigger, and Timber, too;)
