You can't get a full Texas experience without riding a horse. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy this traditional activity. You can rent a horse for a day-trip, or take a guided tour for several days, or even become a participant at an equestrian camp and feel the complete unity with these beautiful animals. State parks offer riders some of the best scenery, unique trails, and safe and pleasant rides. Horses are chosen according to the experience level, size, and age of the rider, thus the trip will be comfortable for all. Private ranches organize horseriding as well. So, you'll have hundreds of places to choose from. Spring and autumn are the best time to practice horse riding, as there is no heat.
One of the best horseback riding tours is at Brazos Bluffs Ranch—a working ranch with horseback riding for people of all ages. Also, we would like to recommend you check Bandera Historical Rides with climbs and vast meadows at Hill Country State Natural Area. The owners offer private tours beyond the regular nose-to-tail ride. Palo Duro Riding Stables is another great tour offering a chance to ride under some of the oldest and largest cottonwoods in the panhandle.
