I'm going to throw another location into the works, though this would be farther east. Has anyone rode Hockiing Hills in Ohio? Would this be another place we might consider? I'm not trying to discourage anyone from Shawnee, but I thought we ought to look over other places that might be available, too. Also, I've never been there, but I've heard a lot about it.

PH; I haven't looked up the Bear Ranch site, yet. So, I'd have to figure all the expenses before deciding if I could go. I usually keep Terra barefoot and have ridden her on the trails around MTR, Hickory Ridge, and Charles Deam this way. Would there be any reason that I should think about putting shoes on her if I do decide to go to Shawnee?

I'd also have to check with Donna and see if she's interested. She said she would definitely not ride if the DE ride ended up at MTR in July... too hot according to her.

I'm assuming the mileage you posted is just one way? So, we'd have to double that to figure traveling expenses? Just asking.

Another thing to consider is the condition of your horse. It seems like there is some rough country in Shawnee with some pretty good hills so a horse that's not conditioned may have problems. I understand it's an awesome place to ride and shouldn't be missed though.

RH, I think the milage PH listed is one way. According to my map, it's about 190 miles from my house to Bear Creek.

not to get the 2 confused. Bear branch is what parrothead was talking about. Bear creek is in southern Ky.
I agree about not going somewhere that is too challenging for horses if you guys usually try to group ride for the DE rides.
Id still like to know if DE rides are usually adults only.
Thanks,
CM

Charlie's mom,

The first DE ride was last year and there weren't any kids on the ride but I think that's because there just weren't any kids there. There's no reason for kids not to come though!
