I ever went on was at Makena Stables in Maui, HI. The horses they use for the ride are also the owner's rope and barrel horses. The scenery can’t be beat. Watching spinner dolphins jumping for whales breaching in the ocean makes a very memora- ble ride. The guides give a brief history of the island as you ride past historical sites. Can’t say enough good things about the ride.

Pat Kafetzopoulos, San Juan Capistrano Cameo wild horse park in Silt,

Colo. Amazing.

Yvonne Morales, Yorba Linda Locally, the Santa Ana River

bottom in Norco. Shaded bam- boo trails, in the summer your whole trail ride in the shade.

Suzanne Ward, Sanger The Bloody Nose Trail at

Montana De Oro out of Los Osos has always been a favorite of ours. It starts near the horse camp and winds along a ravin on both the north and south sides. towards the sand dunes. You have to keep an eye out for poison oak and an occasional rattlesnake. I wonder how it got its name.

Pamela Kramer-Glickman, Carlsbad I have been on many beautiful

trail rides in Rancho Santa Fe. It may not be steep and scary but it warms my heart . Having an older handsome Quarter Horse,

Stanley, that I love so much.I want him to enjoy the trails as much as me.But my favorite spot to ride on a hot summer day is nowhere better than Mission Bay. The wind is blowing my hair and his mane, the water feels refreshing and cool. Life is great! I usually meet up with other horse riders from at least three hours away to enjoy this ride. We cantor and splash in the water like we are kids again.

Brenda Brown, Waynesboro PA Red Rock Trail Ride! Just returned from 6 days riding....different each day. Day One was Zion National Park, then onto Bryce National Park, followed by Thunder Mountain, onto the Dixie National Forest. Next to the last day was the Paria, in the Escalante Staircase National Monument, with the finale a ride down the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Each day was a different definition of breathtaking! Ride is very well organized, food delicious. Fully books a year in advance within a 30 minute I know why!

Mitsy Marquez, Glendale Love riding anywhere in

Griffith Park. It’s a city park, and it can be noisy in some places, but it is in my backyard. It is nature surrounded by

urban sprawl. Most parts have not been touched and are native to the Southern California envi- ronment. Whether starting or ending a day with a ride through Griffith

Park, is good for the soul. The best part is being able to

enjoy it everyday. So, is there a single ride? No, because of single ride is an adventure. My deepest appreciation to Los Angeles Recreations and Parks, Lynn Brown, ETI, the RAP group for protecting and making Griffith Park a jewel of Los Angeles for us urban horse owners.

Hope Adams, Anza My favorite trail is a trail here

is here in Anza. This unique trail heads up and over Thomas Mountain, beautiful single-track to riding side-by-side trails, and over into Garner Valley. We can ride nine to 20 miles depending on loops, etc. The views are outstanding and just enough dirt roads for a couple of miles of gaiting with the gaited horses. Perfect for small to large groups and for any horses. You can do easy loops or add more technical trails, depending on the group. A perfect trail for a perfect day and ride!

Mara Somma A good friend I ride with reg-

ularly suggested taking a guided horse trip to Ireland. Our spring bloom was so exceptional in the wake of the Woolsey fire that we thought we had ”Ireland” right here in our own backyard—or so we thought. I conceded to join her with two other women. I can’t emphasize enough the beauty that unfolded over the five days of riding. We rode roads and trails covering miles of farmland through historic vil-

lages and along the coastline. We spent approximately five hours in the saddle each day with a break for lunch. We were driven to different destinations each morning where we would assist in grooming and saddling our horses. Our guides were excep- tional, offering history lessons all throughout the day. By the end of the trip we were making calls to local realtors inquiring about real estate pric- es. Ireland, an enchanting place to visit an exceptional place to see by horseback and the kind- est people you can imagine.

Christy Wood, Three Rivers I ride on the historic Chief

Joseph Trail ride which covers four states in a 13-year time- frame. We ride 100 miles every year, following the trail the Nez Perce tribe took to elude the calvary in 1877.It starts in Joseph Ore., going through Idaho, Wyoming, and ending at Chinook, Mont. We ride with desendents of

the Nez Perce and people come from all over the U.S. and out of the country to gather and ride only registered Appaloosas. through the most beautiful country in our US. We have a camp crew that feeds us like a cruse on horseback and we have a DJ and a dance floor and dance under the stars every night. Historians, park rangers and even land owners will come and tell us the history of the land we just rode on. I am on my 16th consecutive year and consider it my family reunion every year.
