Bridle Trails was a mental magnet for me as a kid... the thought of a state park just for horses was amazing. I wanted to visit all the time, just to watch horses and envy their riders. When I was old enough, I got to do a girl scout summer camp there. A week of bliss, riding and grooming and learning about horses. The park has three big riding rings, and miles of trails through the woods.
Many years later, I was lucky enough to keep my horse near the park, just a fifteen minute ride up the shoulder of the road to get there. I took lessons in the big ring, and helped with horse shows, and knew every inch of the trails.
A geocache brought us here today, and we walked the trails for an hour or so, exploring. I remembered more than I thought I would, and it was fun to show DW around.
