Ugh, I'm jealous too! I don't have a trailer and live off a country highway. I ride at my house, or a neighbors trails. But its been so long since I've been on a true trail ride. And only once on my horse, over a year ago! My birthday is coming up oct, and all I want is to go for a real trail ride :(

NC is gorgeous and I always drive by areas that I really want to ride. Particularly the power line areas where there's woods on both sides, but big open grass areas with hills <3 <3 I just want to go ride!!

The flip side to this, ime, is having awesome trails and lots of country to ride on but no proper arena to work on more specific arena type things. Yes I know I can do most of that work out on the trails but still... I miss having an arena too. Boo.

Not the best pic of the terrain but it gives you an idea (i have more recent pics on facebook but I can't get to them at work - boo!)

It would have been easier if I put "Charlotte, NC" but since that's the city, and I'm in the country, I prefer to put my own little piece of heaven :)

I wish wish wish someone here lived closer and would want to trail ride with a stranger, lol. Sounds crazy but I need people to ride with. I only have myself at home to ride with and as much as I love my horses, I need people companionship. Once in a blue moon my neighbor and I will catch eachother while we're both home and go for a ride, but its been months. I want to trailer my horse to a park and ride some beautiful trails.

You both look really great. I only have paddocks to school in too or out on hacks.

No, I cannot find any forums like that. I have looked. BTW, what is OH? Is that like significant other? My fiance doesnt ride. I even have two horses and would probably let someone experienced hack out with me on my horse :)

I seldom do a trail ride. Revert back to my youth and just ride to someplace. States usually put out a series of county maps with every road, dirt or otherwise, that's maintained by the state or county. And then there's the firelines, logging roads, farm lanes. Many times a local can tell me a shorter way vs riding along the road. For a day ride anyplace within 20 miles is a good destination and there's often more than one route to get me there, so I can use a different route back.

Just can't ride along the interstates (boy could that save some time :)) ). I just wish good places to camp overnight were easier to find at resonable distances. But it's still doable. Obviously, since people still cross the US on horseback (the ultimate "trail ride" :)) )
With a bit of fitness I would love to do your ultimate trail ride :) Now that sounds fantastic.

OH = Other Half :)

I met up with a lady about 10 miles from me this week. We both have ponies and she has been introducing me to clicker training, we met and got chatting via a forum similar to this. Now we are going to the beach to ride and to some NH fundays :)
