The Great Trinity Forest Gateway and Horse Trails…

horseslnI’ve been chomping at the bit all after noon. Hardly being able to contain my self in the house. I knew I wanted to ride, but it was on the warmer side today.  My horse had been standing tied with her saddle on for most of the after noon. She was getting an attitude adjustment. Learning to stand quietly is an art. She hates to be tied up. There’s no doubt she was thankful a large shade tree, and the cool breeze blowing through, were keeping her comfortable. It won’t be too much longer, she’ll have to endure this process. I have to admit, she is getting better these days.

We finally saddled up around 4PM. Loaded up the horses and headed over to the new horse park. The Great Trinity Forest Gateway and Horse Trails. It’s only 10 minutes from the house. We hadn’t been there yet. It opened up on June 8, 2013. It’s quite beautiful and minutes from downtown. Who’d have thought a trail riding paradise, with-in the city limits of such a large metropolis.

As we drove down the road deep in to the park. We were astonished at all the amenities the park has provided. There were picnic areas with covered tables. Flowerbeds were bordering the sidewalks. A fishing pier hovered over the medium size lake, and people fishing from its banks. There was a sound of laughter in the air from all the children on the playground. Smiling faces strolling along the sidewalks. We couldn’t help but get excited. There was a parking area for horse trailers on the far end of the park. Plenty of ample space to tie your horses. Several hitching posts spread perfectly apart. A watering hole for the horses and shady areas for them to rest after a ride. We began our ride up a winding road in to the interior of the park. The wind was blowing just enough to keep us cool. The trees and grasses danced along side us. The horses had just a slight spark of excitement in their steps. We rode for nearly an hour and a half out and back again. It was the perfect closing for a fabulous weekend.
