I'm looking for trail buddies and trail recommendations. Anyone from central Oregon? I'm in Prineville.

I am in Terrebonne. I know there are lots of Trails in the Ochocos that would be fairly close to you. Gray Butte/Skull Hollow is a fun ride. Sisters Cow Camp has great trails, but beware of the Windigo-Metolious Trail, it has a bog right now that a couple horses had to be pulled out of. The Badlands outside of Bend are fun.
So many options!

Yay someone close to me :) I visit the ochocos for hiking but have yet to trailer out. I was even thinking of joining the ridge riders. I've been here about 2 years but its hard to meet people in a small town. My mare was trail ready last year but I took some time off cause I was pregnant. So I have some tuning up before we actually hit the trails this year but I'm excited. My mare is 9-11 yrs old at best guess. She's a short fat black Arab. I can't take her out to long or to hard because of a past injury but she's great for putting around on. On flat ground we can go quite a ways. I'm working on building her back up and hoping the fitness will help the injury. Anyways I'm rambling. Its nice to meet you! Hopefully you'll tell me about your horses and experience here in CO. Have a great day!

It does seem very difficult to meet people out here! I have been here for almost 3 years and still feel quite lonely. Shoot me a PM if you ever want to meet up sometime! I swear I'm not a psycho axe murderer ;)
As for me and my horses, I have 2, 1 for about 3 years and 1 for a year. Both trail horses, who are very out of shape at the moment and needing to get back in shape for summer trail riding. Unfortunately I have a trailer but no truck, so i am quite limited in my ability to travel out to rides at the moment.
ETA: Congrats on the baby! How exciting!

Wonderful and informative books covering Oregon horse camps and trails by Kim McCarrel including one on Central Oregon...Ponderosa Press in Bend.!!!!!
Tack stores have them or you can order on line.
We love the trails out of Sheep Springs Horse Camp west of Sisters but that is a bit of a drive for you.
Oregon Equestrian Trails has a chapter there (I do believe). Back Country Horsemen is another resource. Getting involved with a group would b a good thing.
I love that area. It's the best. We have a group campout there in June and just talking about it makes me want to be there.

I'm also in Prineville and a member of the ridge riders :) (really fun group of people) I'm always up for a new trail buddy. I have 2 horses, one is mostly retired and the other one is a 5 year old ottb with just a few trail rides under him. The ridge riders are having a 50/50 jackpot on the 17th if you don't want to run your horse in it you can hang out with me in the "crows nest" I could always use the help/company :)
oh and I'm 27 and female if that makes any difference..

This makes me so excited! I'm going to be 26 in July and female obviously lol hence the pregnancy lol I'd love to go to a meeting or a play day. My mare won't be running anything lol but hanging out would be just as fun. I have a 4 month old and a 7 year old but lucky for me hubs and mother in law don't mind watching the kiddos while I do my horsey thing. We should definitely meet up. The only people I know are in bend and I can't drive due to a expired licence, kinda silly, I'm just waiting for my birth certificate to get it transfered and renewed. I have access to a trailer anytime and have a jeep that will pull it as long as its not too far or heavy grades. Fully loaded it tops my jeeps tow capacity lol but its gotten us quite a few places with no issues. PM me, maybe we can exchange numbers and text or something. Haha can you tell I'm lonely.... I'm so glad to meet everyone and I'm excited to explore this fantastic area.

Idk why its so hard to meet people cause everyone is friendly lol like I said earlier my jeep can tow if you ever wanna meet up for a ride too. How are your horses on the trail? Mines pretty laid back but if another horse is high strung she'll feed off it. She's still technically green and doesn't have many miles. She's always behaved on the trail but we've never trailered out to ride either so I won't know what to expect until we're out there. Im so excited to get out and about this summer. PM anytime. We can exchange numbers too. And thanks! I'm a proud mommy.


Oh my names Sarah btw

I hike a lot but don't want to trail ride alone on my greenie. I will definitely be looking at some of these resources though. Your camping trip sounds like fun. I'm hoping to get some horse camping in as well. 2 of my favorite things combined lol

Have any of you guys heard anything about the horsey community around Klamath Falls? I am an english rider, dressage, jumpers, eventing. Medford is probably going to have more english stuff I would think. I currently live in northern California and there is a small english community here but only 1-2 english shows a year, and I may be moving up to Medford in a little bit.

Where abouts in northern California? I'm from Redding. I might be able to point you towards some English riders.

Any advice for Casey and the Kfalls area?

I met Iloveagrey yesterday for coffee and we had a blast. We have plans for Saturday too. Any other central Oregonians are welcome to join us on our future horsey adventures. It was awesome to sit out in the sunshine and talk. We talked for hours before we realized how much time went by. Can't wait for Saturday too.
