Smile New camp site and trail ride

I have a farm in southwest Minnesota that is almost all is in CRP. I cut trails around all of the fields on the 400 acres. There also are trails through the woods along the creek. There also is a nice farm house that has 10 beds, full kitchen and living area. The farm site is big and open with some barns that could be used for horses over night. Plenty of room for trucks and trailers. I am thinking about starting this up as a place for people to come and trail ride and spend the night or 2. There is probably about 5-7 miles of trails. I do not own a horse, just thought this would be nice place for horse back riders. Does this like something people would use. Not sure if I should start advertising or are there way better places out there. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks

There are a couple of web sites you can post on to let folks know you are there. They are pretty well known amongst traveling trail riders. Horse & Mule Trail Guide USA: Trails, Campgrounds, Overnight in Missouri Horseback Trails and Campgrounds - Horse Trail Riding and Camping

I don't know if they charge to post an ad, but I think it would be worth it.
Check to see if there is a trail riding club in your area. Those folks can be very helpful even if you don't own a horse.
Good luck, hope everything works out

That sounds just lovely! The only think I have to caution you on is look into liability insurance because I know someone that used to let people just trail ride through his property and someone fell off once and sued him.....and won. It was just awful! So definitely make sure that you are protected!
