Trail Riders near San Antonio, Texas

My husband is active duty US Air Force, and we will be moving to Lackland Air Force Base at the end of June. Now that we have a date nailed down for when we're moving out there I'm making plans for my horse. I've got a list of boarding facilities (including the one on the base) that I will check out when we go on a house hunting trip in May. I'm also looking for places to ride, and maybe people I can ride with.

Anyone know of any good places to ride around San Antonio (I'd be willing to haul no more than an hour-hour and a half for 15-20 miles of trails...maybe more for camping/organized trail rides/unique trails).

Anyone know about trail riding clubs in the area?

Anyone in the area looking for or welcoming anyone to ride with?

I wish I was, so I could come ride with you I love that area. I've never ridden there but the Canyon Lake area and Guadalupe river state park is very pretty. One of those areas I would like to retire to.

Hello,
I saw your thread, I don't know if you are in this area yet-- but I live in Bandera, which is less than an hour away -- are you still intrested in trail rides in this area? If so have you heard or have you been to the hill country state park yet? I ride their often and am familiar with the area- it has got to be the best bang for your buck- another area is sistercreek ranch. Alittle futher out but really worth the trip

Smile Riding Group

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.

I have been to Bandera It's a quaint little town,(love the BBQ Place there) my S/O is originally from Utopia. I have always wanted to ride there but it was too long of a haul for the horses from Maryland...I have also been to the Hill Country state parks Most are very nice....He was just down there for his mothers funeral I didn't get to go had to stay back and take care of critters here.... He still has land in the Hill country.
