Great time at Raven Rock!

Just a post to do some show and tell from my trail ride Sunday at Raven Rock State Park in Lillington, NC. To anyone in the area who has not gone on this ride, I highly recommend it!

That looks like fun! Did you get in some nice canters? Looks very inviting for that.

No, we didn't, and for a combination of reasons:
Our horses are barefoot, just got trimmed two days prior, and there are some pretty rocky sections (also our first time on this trail, don't know it well)

It is a pretty busy park, and there were quite a few "unfavorables" there, if you know what I mean

We are both still pretty new to horses, and it was just a little out of our comfort zone! We did do a bit of trotting over the soft pine straw trails, but only once we got more comfortable with it and learned that we were two of four horses left on the trails :)

Here is the official link to the park
N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation: - Welcome to Raven Rock State Park

It is free to ride, with a great trailer parking area, primitive ( but CLEAN!!) bathroom, and two 4-mile trail loops. It took us about 41/2 hours to ride, but we weren't in any hurry and were enjoying the sights. There were a couple of creek crossings (the one pictured had a cute little water fall), some hills, and a variety of foliage. It is a great beginner trail ride.

Yeah, I won't canter out if I can't see what's around the corner. Undesirables?

Drunks with high strung horses causing a ruckus.

The scenery is beautiful -- you're lucky to have access to such an area. Pity about the 'undesirables'.

P.S. What's your companion's cap doing (Picture 7 I think) - a new fashion statement?

Ugh, his glasses are ALWAYS crooked and it drives me nuts!

Looks beautiful there and looks like y'all really enjoyed it. Is it close enough that y'all are looking to go more often or was it just somewhere you traveled to check out? I've seen a few places that are a good drive out, but want to go experience here.


BTW, good looking horses.

What nice trails! A few trees across the trails and water crossings? Perfect!
Thank you for taking us along. : ) It's always interesting to see where others ride.
