7000 acres...must be nice. *sigh*

My favorite place to ride would have to be here at home. We own 180 acres of trails behind the house which cuts onto our neighbors trails...which is about 300 acres. It's a nice ride.

I like to ride up on Buzzard Rock and the trails around the Conservation Lake... it's just a two hour ride along the sides of the roads to get there to the start of the trails. XD!

Buzzard Rock is the highest point in Etowah County in Attalla and Gallant in Alabama. It's a long trail that goes up the side of a mountain (I forget which mountain it is, though)

So far my favorite place to ride is home We only have 10 acres. We have lovely farmer neighbors who let us ride on their land though. I think about 1400 acres total. My closest neighbor even let me cut trails through his. I mow and trim about 5 miles of trails on his place. Its really pretty, spring fed creek, lots of wildlife. Another neighbor across the road cuts trails for himself to use when hunting (he lives in town) but gave us a key to his gate so we can ride over there whenever we want. There are 3 other farmers in the area who we have permission to ride on there land too. Our place is on a corner with a dirt road on one side so of course we can ride the road. It really pays to be a good neighbor We live 5 miles from a city lake that is in the process of putting in an equestrian camp ground and has many miles of maintained trails. Our saddle club is working to improve them all the time.
As far as away from home places, our favorite for now is Lake Carl Blackwell in Oklahoma http://lcb.okstate.edu/EquestrianTrails.htm
They have nice camping and facilities for horses. They have really well maintained trails and even place horse watering tanks at certain points. We are still exploring different places to trail ride and camp in our area so stay tuned for more in this topic

my favorite place to go riding is behind my house where there is probably 1000 acres of preserved land (indian territory I think). There are lakes to swim in and there is always wildlife around (deers, boars, birds, bobcats, etc). Also if anyone has been to florida we have these patches of trees called hammocks and the peserve has many of those.

I trailer a lot. 70% of Utah is Public lands. So there are lots of places to ride with incredible views.


From Green Mountains




To lots of Desert and Canyonlands

As long as you have bushes close by it's not a problem... Lol!

But seriously you have great place. I have to haul my horse if I want trail ride. And not too many big parks around (Patapsco is rather big though, but everything else is for couple hours of riding max).
