River Ranch ACTHA ride

What a fantastic trail ride we had down at Westgate's River Ranch!  I left the kiddos with my husband and mother and armed with iced tea I headed to load horses at 5:30 in the morning.  We had a full rig, loaded with Jenn, myself, Olivia and Sloane in the truck and accompanying horses in the trailer.  

 
I had heard a lot about this facility, but never been.  It was indeed a nice place, full of camping, glamping, hotels, cabins and more.  They host a weekly rodeo and have a full service saloon as well as restaurant on grounds.  
 
The host of the ride, Beth, did a great job making the ride fun, organized and clear cut on the rules.  The trails were typical of Florida, mostly flat (unless you count the incline on the canal banks) with a lot of great vegetation.  
 
 
Best of all was the company!  I love getting together with old friends as well as meeting new.  There were a lot of names and faces there that I've mentioned on this blog since it's inception and several new ones.
