Anyone one here from Utah?

I am looking for some new horse friends to ride with. I love riding with just me and my husband but sometimes it's nice to go with other people. Just wondering if there is anyone from Utah around the Salt Lake Valley who would be interested in getting together to ride.

I'm up by Lagoon, So if you want to explore some areas North of Salt Lake this winter. Could show you around Antelope Island or Mountain Green in Weber Canyon. Kinda of my winter riding areas.

Spring time I like to head down to the San Rafael And we are always game to show new folks around as we ride.

And I ride MFTs

Ya that would be fun. We keep meaning to go out to Antelope Island but haven't made it yet. We had a awesome 3 hour ride today. The weather was perfect. I'll sent you my email and we can try to make a plan sometime. Thanks for answering.

Is that Dimple Dell where you rode today? I've only rode there 2 times over the years. It is about the same as me riding the Bonneville Shoreline trail above Kaysville/Layton

Ya we ride Dimple Dell a lot in the winter just because it is easy on their feet. We pull our horses shoes in the winter so they are barefoot right now.

That's why I ride antelope island a lot in the winter. It has a sandy granular soil that doesn't get really muddy, yet isn't too hard on feet. Although the back loop of White rock bay, does have some pretty rocky section. The front loop that most people ride in the winter is a lot easier on the horses feet.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

Yep the old rock corral and Split Rock Bay. I see you rode all the back.
I guess that means the trophey hunters got there mule deer and bighorn sheep. The island was closed to everybody but hunters earlier in the week so that those two hunters harvest their animals. But I can't imagine it would take very long to harvest a nice trophey on the island.

Buffalo still at the north end or have they started to move back to the south end?

We saw a few but not as many as most years.
