    One thing about NATRC - they do give out nice awards! At least they did back then - I haven't done a NATRC ride in a very long time. But this one is by far my fav:

    Sorry, I been away, but thanks for the warm welcome! I did get a chance to ride at the not yet opened state park in Strawn on a special ride, and when that opens it will be nice. We have also ridden at San Angelo state park, which has 50 miles of trails. They have good equestrian camping, the campsites are behind a locked gate, have water and electric, each site has horse pens or tie outs, and there is a restroom. The shower house is a short walk across the creek. In September they are having a "Ride with the Monarch Butterfly" trail ride and campout! We want to go ride at Mineral Wells state park, can anyone tell us some info about that place, or the trailway?

    I see postings of get togethers, if one was to come up, we have a stock trailer that would have room for a couple of horses, and if we found someone to help share gas money, we have a travel trailer we could bring along for some extra beds. We would just need a bit of notice to get our schedule straight. Just throwing that out there for interested persons.

    I do have a travel trailer, but taking 2 trucks is such a pain in the wallet. If I could find a way to split costs, ride share or something...... I'd rather stay in my TT than a hotel room. Shower, Elect, Kitchen, can sleep 9, I know where everything is, no elevator noises all night.

    So far, our one try at San Angelo State Park we started out with the horses in the provided pens. Each campsite has 2 wsmall pens, and Hiline tether poles. But when the storms coming at us got to looking serious, we moved the horses into the trailer (the horse trailer, not the travel trailer), which they got to spend the night in. The hailstorm got a windshield in one truck, but that was the worst of the damage. The other attempt, we were at the newly aquired and not yet officially opened state park in strawn, and we did a hiline tether between trees. It worked very well, let the horses move around, get water, etc.
    I have given some thought on portable pens, but not seriously yet. Still looking at whats available.

    Monte I am jewish and my people spent 40 years living in tents while wandering the desert I am in no hurry to relive the experience. LOL We will have future get togethers so keep in touch. I hope my friends down south are planning one for the fall. Hope they get the hint but if not. PLAN THE **** THING!!!!> Shalom

    Happy Friday y'all!

    I'm so looking forward to getting out and riding somewhere else! We've been riding regularly around the pasture and down the road which is great but I wanna go to different places!

    So what areas around San Antonio would be considered horse friendly and reasonably priced land wise? (20+ acres) Fixing to put in a bid on work that way and want to make a more permanent move if it pans out.

    Hi fellow Texas peeps! I wanted to introduce myself here. I'm Chelsea, my husband Steve and I recently became the proud owners of 2 Arabian geldings, Oracle and Jericho. Steve has had Jericho at our boarding stable for a couple of weeks now and Oracle is finally being transported tomorrow (I feel like a kid on Christmas eve I'm so excited)! We live in McKinney, and board in Allen. I would love to hear from anyone in the area on where are some of the best places to ride. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all :)
