Amidst the glitz and glamour of this resort town, there is still a chance for visitors to experience the history of the area and to realize that today's Tahoe has its roots in the legendary Old West. The Camp Richardson Corral and Pack Station opened in 1934 and has been operated by the same family every summer since then. They offer one- and two-hour trail rides, pony rides for the younger children (ages 5 and younger) and even hay wagon rides. Make a meal out of it and take a steak ride or steak wagon ride and cap your equestrian excursion off with a traditional Western barbecue dinner. Trail riders must be 6 years or older, and the maximum weight is 225 pounds. Appropriate clothing is also required. The Corral also offers horse-drawn sleigh rides in the winter, conditions permitting.
