I almost forgot. We had an International Horsemans Association on campus. Don't know if they still do but you could keep your horse on campus if you were willing to share time on your horse for shows and practice and were willing to compete for the IHA. I got involved when I didn't have a horse to call my own and stayed with it when I did. At that point I was on another A&M campus but rules were the same. UT had IHA as well but I had no time at that point for competition. As for Dallas I lived in Arlington, Desoto and Cedar Hill. Kept my horses in CH as it had great places for reasonable $$ and conditions. I don't think they ever went through with trails at the state park but that was where we rode closest to home. Even went in with someone renting a 15 acre "ranchette" and had horses there.
