You need to give O'Bannon Woods a try! Over 100 miles of trails, some along the Ohio River, some along Blue River. Great trails, excellent camp sites primitive and electric. Awesome Park staff very horse friendly! The Park Manager even rides around in a buggy making his rounds. We love it! Corydon Indiana!

If there is ever an Indiana ride that gets planned, I would love to come!
I'm in southern Indiana, Washington County. (: Does anybody ever go to the Clark County forestry?

I've not been to Clark Co. Foxes but I'm still game for a forum trail ride. We need to definitely plan one for next year. I only went twice this year off my own property, both for a quick afternoon at Tippe. Sometimes it really stinks that others horses & students keep me so busy that I can't enjoy some break time with my own. I've been seeing pics & hearing good things about the new(ish) Wildcat Creek in Tippecanoe Co, they even hosted an AQHA trail challenge - I hope they do so again so I can participate.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I've only been to Clark Co. as I don't have my own trailer yet and that's where my friend prefers to go, but hopefully by the time we get this ride planned I will have one of my own. And I can go to other places as well.
I'm not sure I could spend my time on other horses, I'd miss my girl too much! :b

Foxes Im over in Orange county. If we get a forum ride planned for next year and you need a ride you and your horse are more than welcome to ride with me. Shirley Creek down here in Orange county is AWESOME place to ride. Rode there ths past weekend and had a blast. Hills, Hollars, Creeks, and Open Fields all on one trail makes for a very enjoyable day. DNR did a great job with this horse camp.

There Ain't A Horse That Can't Be Rode
And A Rider That Can't Be Throwed

Thanks Harley (:
Though I'm not 100% my parents would be okay with that, I'll talk to them when the time comes. (I'll be probably only be 17 when the ride happens :b )
Once I do get a trailer, I'll have to go out to different trails myself as well. Riding the same places can get a little boring sometimes. :b

I have also been to Greene Sullivan in Dugger Indiana. It's definitely a bit more rugged than Midwest, but the trails are awesome! They have every level you could want, from very easy to single tracks winding up, down, and around. Very reasonable camping fees, and they also have a day ride parking area. No showers, but they do have a port-o-potty style bathroom. It is a first come first serve type of place, the first time we went were actually the only ones there.
JW Jones is a great place to day ride, from what I've heard camping is no longer an option due to dumb-dumbs vandalizing.
I have also been to Corydon in O'Bannon forest. Great place, but very challenging trails with a lot of rock.
I'm from Sullivan County, didn't know Greene/Sullivan had horse trails, sweet! I don't have a horse yet but still in the process of getting the needed supplies :) I hope one day I get a chance to go on a group ride too!
