There is Silver Spur Riding Club in Dublin. It is a private riding club that you pay a membership to be able to ride on their lands. There is another one called Mingo Trails. They also have a membership fee but I pay per time that I go ride there. It is $10 per visit for day riding. Both these places have campgrounds.

Mingo Trails

Silver Spur is Home Page

There are also 2 sites that are good for finding places to ride
Horse Trails and Campgrounds in Georgia

And
Horse & Mule Trail Guide USA: Trails, Campgrounds, Overnight in Georgia

I also ride on what is locally known as either 1099 or the Ocmulgee River Trail which is state and national land between Forysth and Monticello.

Brighteyes, I like Mingo but at $100 membership it is cheaper for me to pay per ride out there as a single person. I actually made it all the way out to the hay field last time.

Sorry, I have NO idea about Georgia geography, though I was born there xD so sorry if this is way off track, but I went back a few years ago and rode at the Chickamauga National Battlefield. It was a TON of fun and it was well maintained when I went, but that was in 2009 I think.

Totally true! If you're only going a couple times per year, it's better to pay the $10 per day.

I am in North Georgia, I have ridden in Chickamauga battlefield and it is very nice. I also ride a Dry Creek between Resaca and Lafayette, Great trails. I have ridden at Garland Mountain more south in Cherokee County. Very nice trails. But my mostest favorite place to ride is Cohutta Wilderness up above Chatsworth. Fabulous Trails and remote area!!
