You may want to check out TETRA, Texas Equine Trail Riders Asso. They have clubs in different regions of the state and group rides once a month and a quarterly newsletter. I am a member but haven't been on any of the organized rides yet...just google TETRA and you shouldn't have a problem finding it. I am in Austin just north of San Antonio. I prefer weekday riding since I don't get to see much of my hardworking hubby as it is, I like to be home on the weekends when he is off. Maybe we could try to get together some time to ride. There are a lot of nice areas around Austin, Onion Creek, Spicewood Springs, McKinney Falls, Prarie Haynes etc.
