One of the best things about my backyard is the diversity of adventures just waiting to be taken. When it comes to stay at home vacations, my all time favorite happens to include horses. From the time I was very young, I have had a love for these powerful and very beautiful animals.Fortunately for me, my backyard is a haven for horse lovers, offering not only horseback riding, riding lessons, and riding trails, but horseback vacations.
If you are just interested in a weekend vacation, there are several stables very close by that offer their services for your enjoyment. If you are willing to drive a couple of hours, there are a ranches that offer everything from fine dining and trail rides to week long cattle roundups.
