Well horses really.. but I call 'em ponies :p

We've gotten some trail riding in this year, way fun! We have a ton of camping trips planned as well... I'm totally stoked.


My friend and her gorgeous mare Bailey. This mare is only 3 and is the best trail pony ever!


Cairo and I.


Bailey again.


Bailey's good side :p


Cairo's face.


Cairo and I the last show we went to in Jan. '09 My equitation is scary in this picture but she was a dork the whole class and I knew the photographer was taking out picture so I wanted her head down haha.

The place we went that day is a place called 'Flying M Ranch' it's way out in the country and they have miles of trails to ride on, even some logging roads. We had a pretty good time. There are some other state parks that we can take our horses to and ride, with marked trails and such. The barn I used to keep her at had access to logging roads so we'd go on those all day. One thing I really love about living in Oregon is that when you go out trail riding you can really appreciate all the greenery!

Wow, a gorgeous Pinto and grey! I grew up on a 100 acre farm and had horses till I was 19. I want nothing more then to have a farm and horses again! I rode both Western and English, loved western on the trails! Was training for events, primarily dressage, when I had to suddenly retire my last horse, Tobby, at ten years old from a debilitating genetic disease.......

Wow those horses are beautiful!

I'm curious, are there places where you guys/girls are where you can ride horses without having to own them ... Like riding schools or something?

If yes, I have a few questions:
1. Do they always assign you one particular horse that is compatible with you or do they just give you whichever horse is available at the time?
2. Do these horses have time and space to roam around when they are not being ridden, or are they mostly shut up in their stalls?

Hope someone can help me understand more about how such riding schools etc work! Thanks in advance

It depends. A riding school will give you lessons. Lesson horses are usually ridden by a couple of a kids a day. It depends on the facility what they do on their off time and how many lessons they give. They give you a horse compatible with your level of expirience to teach you how to ride.

Now there are other places that you can go to just ride, trail riding groups that have a set of horses and will take you out on a trail ride for an hour. The horses mostly follow each other and go out on several rides a day so they pretty much have everything memorized. Again what they can do in their off time, turnout etc. is up to whoever owns the group of horses.
