Equine Park Fun

BYOH (bring your own horse) to make future rides more enjoyable

Some say there’s nothing more relaxing than traversing forested trails from a seat in the saddle atop your favorite horse.

If you can relate, register to join Geauga Park District for a naturalist-led Horseback Trail Ride on Saturday, May 24, 2014, at The West Woods in Russell Township.

A 6- to 8-mile ride on the Pioneer Bridle, Music Street and Affelder Trails promises to provide plenty of natural history lore so horse and rider may more fully enjoy future rides through these woodlands and fields. Hills, gravel, bridge and stream crossings should be anticipated, as well as spring wildflowers and migratory birds.

Ride times are 10 a.m. to noon for walking only, then 1 to 2:30 p.m. for walking, trotting and cantering; participants may register for one or both trail rides with a lunch break between.

Helmets are recommended and registration is required online or by calling 440-286-9516. Please call with questions about the program.

Geauga Park District is online, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
