So, I have finally convinced my parents that I am a big girl and can trailer my horses somewhere for an overnight ride out of state...so long as I take a friend but I already have that covered.
Anywho, before I seriously get to talking with my parents about it I need to figure out my entire battle plan. My friend is willing to go in half and half with me on everything, but we still need this to be a cheap adventure.
We plan to tent camp in a state park or something along the lines...we would need a place where you could pull the trailer up to the site, not have to pack everything in because we plan to take panels along to set up pens for our stay. My truck isnt four wheel drive either so I can't get up anything super steep.
Im looking for a place with a variety of terrain and trails, possibly a few creeks to cross, and that has some good scenery. It can be mountains or level plains with forests...no preference there, my horses will do either...just so long as the truck doesnt have to scale a mountain on a gravel or dirt road or something worse we should be fine.
It would be the kind of trip where we drive out one day, set up camp, sleep, ride all the next day, sleep, ride again, sleep, pack up and drive home. A fairly short trip.
I live in north texas and need a good place within a days drive. So oklahoma, arkansas, new mexico maybe...somewhere close...
Does anyone know of a place like this we could go to ride? Even places in texas are welcome though getting out of state would be preferable.
