where do you trail ride?

Just curious how far do most of you have to go to trail ride? . . . I have woods that back up to my farm.

I'm not too big on trail riding, but when I do go, its usually on the road, around my barn or through wooded trails.

I've got about an hour's worth or a little more where I board. I can trailer to three different places--one 10 minute away, one twenty minutes away, and one a half hour away. I don't use the trailer December through March because my truck isn't great. The other months, I try to trailer 2 or 3 times a week. I'd trailer every day if I had the money and the time! I actually kind of like the short rides on property in the winter--usually only 30 or 45 minutes out in the cold!

I consider myself lucky, as we have lots of trails, close by to ride on. Either on my own property or through a gate to my neighbours (with permission of course). Now if only I could get across that beaver dam I would have about 300 more acres to ride.

I just go on my own property most of the time. I can go down my gravel road to find a few more, but not much. I have trailered up to 1 1/2 hrs to go on a fundraiser trail-ride, but I don't know just how often I will do that in future.

We have woods right out our backdoor with hours of trails.We have some great horse folks that keep the trails well marked and clean(more so in the summer months)we can also trailer for for short distance to more wooded areas.We are surrounded by timber land.

I trailer because there are no trails around. We have 7 parks around to choose from, so it's not that bad. Although I'd love to have park right behind my house (trailering is too expensive with this gas price )

I can either trailer my horse to my friend's property and go on the trails there (we are usually out for 3-4 hours)
I can also go on a trail that's really close by to where I board. You have to go down a dirt road and the entrance is right there. I have yet to go because I do not want to go out by myself.

I ride down my back roads some, in neighboring pastures where I have permission and sometimes my friend and I haul a couple miles over to a huge cattle pasture in the flinthills where we have permission. Now that's fun..

Where I board there is only one trail, but we are planning on helping the owner and her dad make some more. She offered that me and my friend could make some more so we might start doing that when the bananna spiders are gone. I usually ride down the main road then we turn and go down this long dirt road. Although I havent been down that road in a while. Last winter me and my friend would ride for about 2-4 hrs.. our horses were in top condition and it never phased them.. now I am in the process of getting him back in shape. He is coming along good. Right now I have just been riding down the road from 45min.-1hr30min. It just all depends on the plans for that day..
