Unhappy A Little Frustrated for my Mini

I have a Miniature gelding who I like to take for walks and would like to take camping. I live in Georgia, and there are only 6 or so state parks with horse facilities. I just called one that looked promising, and was told that I can't bring my Miniature Horse because I would be walking him, and there is no walking allowed on the horse trails, only riding ("BUT HE'S A HORSE!" I'm thinking to myself). I asked if I could walk him on the regular trails, then, and they said no, horses are not allowed on those, (even itty bitty ones). I also called a regular state park and they said no, he can't come (though I figured so on that one). What the heck then? No love for the little guys.

Oh! My goodness I feel for you and your little guy, we have many trails in and around my town, here in Australia. The trails are open to horse riders, walkers, dog walkers and bike riders and we have no problems. I plan to take my new little guy (my rescue shetland) for regular walks on these trails with my children and the dogs. We also do alot of camping with our horses and the little one will also be coming. I just cannot understand why you could not walk your little guy on at least the walking trail - I am sure the walkers would love to see a Mini walking amoungst them.

Thanks Angelina, I feel the same way! As it turns out I just found another state park a little further away than the no-Minis one that allows pedestrians on its horse trails, yay, and they have horse campsites. So now I have someplace to look forward to taking my little guy in the fall. :)

I don't know where in Georgia you are, but in many places there are dirt roads that go on for many miles that you can walk on. I do all my riding on dirt roads of Georgia. There is occasional traffic, but if you stay to the right, they go around you. The roads that I ride on are too rough for cars. Only trucks are on them and they go slow.

camping, mini, miniature
