Joe has it right, needs to be located in a touristy area as that would be your bread and butter.

Personally, I wouldn't use the facility. If I'm going to travel to ride a horse its going to be my horse first of all. Secondly, vacations for me are to get away from people and not head towards a tourist trap. I find nothing relaxing about crowds, buying trinkets or paying for overpriced meals.

I was looking at it as a once or twice a year thing. You would need alot of land and generally use it as a fund raiser for a fire department of boyscout troop. To much labor to run without help and paying labor will sink you,.
A ride around here of about 100 riders is 16 miles, and does a Halloween ride. People dress themselves and horses in costumes. Its alot of fun.

The theme for group trail rides around here seems to be
"escape from home and drink beer" with little regard to other riders.
I avoid a lot of those big groups.

Had a guy who liked to drink go with me once on his arab. Most his beer ended up in his lap while trying to keep up. He didn't try opening a second can and never rode with me again.

Too funny. One of my friends bought a dead broke retired western pleasure show horse. Her husband took a whole six pack of beer in his saddle bags. He got so tipsy that he fell off of the horse that nobody could ever fall off of. Big laugh for everybody.

I was racing this evil girl (stone sober), came off my horse, bounced off some rocks, couple broke ribs, knocked out, slurred speech. Etc. I woke up on my horse. Ran into some guys at another trail ride that started laughing, said, :we remember you you were too drunk to stay on your horse we put you back on and got your hat for you"
Gee thanks guys I hadnt been drinking I had a concussion.

Well it looks like I need to do some rethinking of my idea. Thank you guys for all your input.
I have not yet ridden a horse drunk but I used to work with a guy who was the private ride guide at my old job who never came in sober lol. But he'd been doing it so long sometimes you couldn't really tell.

I am not that interested in the medieval them but I would definitely travel to one that was western or Indian themed. I think it sounds like a great idea.
