    I live in North Idaho and I LOVE it! Back behind my house and just on the other side of the road I have COUNTLESS trails to ride on; whether they be flat trails in the woods (good to ride green broke horses on or the older ones because they still get the trail experience just not as much work) or trails up the mountain (great for getting horses in shape). I can go on a short 1-2 hour ride (making a loop so you don't have to ride back on the same trail), a 3-6 hour ride (also making a loop) or a full on all day ride (also a loop!). I can ride on old logging roads that head up and back down the mountain, or take a deer/horse made trail, or I can go off the trail and make my own. And it's really great because when people come to go riding there are so many different options so it's always tons of fun. The trails around here are also great experiences for the horses; we have creeks to cross, small lakes, logs to jump/go around, steep up/down hills, traffic (if you want to get your horse used to it, can always be avoided though), bridges to cross, etc. It's awesome out here, so beautiful, lots of fresh air, etc. You can also do lots of hunting and fishing around here! Even on horseback if that's what you like. There's also lots of trails and different places close by to trailer to and ride, its great! There's lots of horse shows, play days, horse 4-H, etc.

    Here's some pictures taken on some trails here at home (on the mountain just across the road ). The last two pictures are of the mountains we ride up; the first of the two is the mountain right across the road and the other is the one behind my house. We ride up and around both of them all over.

    I just spent two days riding in South Eastern Idaho, Not an hour from Idaho Falls. It was great riding.


    One of the girls with us didn't make it across the river. She lost her balance as the horse was slipping ont he rocky bottom and went over board and had to wade out of the river.


    We ride across some of the forest service bridges, This one was too old so we waded through the mud on the right side.


    All of these are great experiences for horses learning to trust their riders.

    I live in Sagle which is about 45 mins. From Cour d' alene, (spelling?) Idaho. So pretty far north and I'm about 15 minutes from Sandpoint, Idaho. We are also about an hour and a half from Spokane, WA.

    Hope that kind of gives you an idea of where we are at.

    I think we've been here for about 12 years. It's a great place to live, if I could choose any place in the world to live it'd be right here. It's so perfect for us.

    Oh and thanks for the nice comment about Boogie, he's 26 years old, believe it or not :) , and still going strong, he's always the first one up the mountain lol.

    Oh cool!!! Where do you live?

    I'm not in 4-H, I've done a few open shows in the past when I was a lot younger but nothing recently as far as showing goes. I'm 18 yrs. Old.

    Were in Spirit lake, near Rathdrum ID. I'm 19 and also haven't done much showing in the last few years but plan on getting back into it, were starting our own 4H ground next year, we tried to do it this year but the stupid lady in CDA didn't get my mom the paper work in time, so were going to go to the Sandpoint side, the people are MUCH nicer although I hate going to sandpoint with all the stuff there doing and all the people.
