We have a lot of land and many of it is woods so we ride in the fields or all around the woods. I try to stay away from the roads.

At the barn where I ride at, they have 2 locations. Trails at both. The HUGE trails (like over 2,000 acres! it's beautiful) are at the other location. They just do trails & Cross Country eventing there- the XC field is huuuuuuge lol. Where I ride usually, they do lessons & shows. But they have trails, & they are also nice. Very spacious & beautiful.

Ride more, worry less.

Where I trail ride depends on the season. The fall hunting season is just wrapping up and I've spent most of Sept and Oct in the mountains where I hunt.





In the colder months we head south and ride the desert areas of Central and Southern Utah. Less snow and not as cold.

When it warms up again whe head back to the mountains of Northern Utah and late summer up into Wyoming and Idaho.

One time, actually, the third time I rode Lizzy, I took her on about a 15 mile trail ride...

Usually I only go on about maybe 2-5 miles.

I've asked my wife to go for a short ride with me. Her reply is that I don't know what a short ride is! A short ride is 4 hours vs a long ride that is 8 hours long to several days.

Luckily, all of my horses are at my dad's place and when I go to ride, I have about 100 square miles to chose from. There are lots of fences but I know all the people who own the land and they don't care if I ride on their property. Plus, I like making my own trail. Most of the places that I ride don't have paths going through them. Sometimes it is hard going through the brush and trees down to a creek but it's fun. :)

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I don't have pictures but I generally ride down to the river which is about 5 miles away. One at the river we stop for lunch, take the horses for a swim and usually jump in for a swim ourselves, weather permitting.
