If you’re visiting West Texas, there’s a good chance you’ll feel the urge to ride a horse. It’s something about the wide open spaces, the dry, rugged land, and the lack of roads. It brings out the cowboy in the best of us.
Luckily, you can go horseback riding in West Texas.
Fort Davis Stables offers Trail Rides to suit even the most inexperienced riders. You’ll ride a gentle giant, and enter a wild and peaceful land that will soothe your soul. Trail rides can last an hour or they can last all day. You can take a Sunset Ride into the mountains, or stay out in the Davis Mountains for one, two, or three nights. If the spirit moves you, you can even participate in a Cattle Drive. Extraordinary experiences, every one.
You’ll want to be treated gently when you get out of the saddle, and Fort Davis Bed and Breakfasts won’t let you down.
The Veranda Inn, as its name suggests, has a large veranda; it’s a perfect place to enjoy a drink at the end of a day in the saddle. It also has two, secluded, walled courtyards and a great deal of outdoor seating. If you can sit at all, you’ll want to sit here.
The Old Schoolhouse Bed and Breakfast sits at the foot of Sleeping Lion Mountain. Rest in the shade of a pecan grove, breathe in the clean mountain air, and admire the views. It’s the perfect place to transition back to society after time on the trail.
