Horsebackriding Links and Articles:
These are some website's that might
help you in your horseback ride trail planning while at our cabin........
Several places will board your own horses
for your visit. Try Rawhide Ranch
2) Charles Deam/Wilderness West Area Trails are really
nice too and a little closer, maybe 1/2 hr to get there. http://www.fs.fed.us/r9/hoosier/recreation/trail_rogs/deam_wilderness.pdf
We like both these places and you can download the trail maps online at the link above. There's also a little
bait shop called the Fishin' Shed on the way on Rt 446 south of Bloomington that sells the trail permits so we usually
run out there the night before or on the way (if your trailer's not to big) to get our trail passes. If you know
what days you are going to ride at what places, you can order them ahead of time from the links above.
