Do you dream of mounting a horse and cantering off across a field in Texas? Can you imagine the scent of the tall grass, the feel of the reins in your hands, the rush of air against your cheeks? Yes? Then it’s time for a horseback riding vacation in Texas.
Many of our Texas Bed and Breakfasts offer horseback riding. Some have horseback riding on site, as does Blisswood Bed and Breakfast in Cat Spring and 9E Ranch B&B near Smithville and Bastrop. Others, like McCardell Cottage in Livingston, can help guests locate riding opportunities. McCardell Cottage is near Lake Livingston State Park.
Many of us don’t have the opportunity to ride horses very often. We live in cities, and perhaps it’s not a priority. Yet it calls to us. Something seems so wonderfully freeing about horseback riding across a field or down a trail. The very thought conjures images of that American icon, the cowboy. If you’ve been horseback riding, you know what we mean. If you’ve never had the pleasure, you know you want to try it.
