HORSEBACK RIDING TRAILS

Trail riding in Maryland’s scenic hills and valleys lets you get up close
and personal with nature, both with the horse underneath you and
the wildlife you see along the way. The relaxing walk of the horse covers
far more ground than you could on foot, and being up high gives you
a great vantage point to spot deer or wild turkeys. And you’ll enjoy a
chance to bond a bit with a horse. From beginners ambling along in a gentle
walk through the woods to experienced riders crossing rivers
and scrambling up hills, there’s plenty of fine riding to be had here.
