I believe the best way to have fun with horses is to ride them. And where better than to explore new trails in beautiful places! If You're like me, you'll be too busy taking pictures and snacking on beef jerky to worry about your job or how badly the kitchen floor needs to be mopped. And your horse is enjoying herself so much, the thought of riding in the arena just sounds like work! This is unwind time for horse and rider.

Equestrian camping is something the whole family can get into, even if your hubby is not a horseback rider. He’ll enjoy the fishing, hiking or simply holding down the camp with a radio and an ice cold beer in hand. It’s all about making unforgettable memories. And just think, you won’t have to find anyone to take care of the horses while you’re gone!
