What I love most about horseback riding in Riverside, is the diverse choices. The Equestrian area is a great place to trail ride, but I like the fact you can camp and work on so many different applications in a safe and secure area. Highlining a horse is used when camping without facilities. Teaching my horse this at the campground was a fun and safe way to see how he would do. I also enjoy the arena, round pen and trail course to work on skills in a beautiful setting. Trail 25 runs along the river there and is now a multi-use trail. It’s a good place to teach your horse about hikers and bikes but you can easily get off 25 and take the inner trails which are equestrian only. The ground on the inner trails is soft and the trees provide shade and protection from the wind.
