Memorial Day weekend draws ever closer, and while we at Dan’s Papers can’t wait, we also know there are many things we have to squeeze in during the next few weeks on the East End, lest we lose our chance with all that summer brings. We know that if we don’t get out and do these now, we’ll have to wait until after Labor Day before we try again…and so will you!

We continue our countdown of things to do before Memorial Day weekend on the East End with #19: Ride Horseback at Deep Hollow

Hiking and biking have their place on the East End list of wonderful things to do, but experiencing nature and our beautiful beaches on horseback is something every local should try at least once.

It also happens that Montauk is home to nation’s oldest working ranch and the “birthplace of the American cowboy.” Deep Hollow Ranch offers trail rides for everyone from first-time riders to old cowhands, and it all happens among Montauk’s thousands of acres of preserved woods and coastal land. The 350-year-old ranch has a variety of educational, group and private rides to fit any taste, and none of them will disappoint.

See Block island Sound, the Atlantic Ocean and Oyster Pond, as well as historic Native American lands and that of early settlers. Sharing the moment with friends or family, and the horse beneath your saddle is not to be missed, so beat the crowds and head east before Memorial Day changes everything.

Come back tomorrow for 50 Things to Do Before Memorial Day in the Hamptons #18.
