After twenty years of traveling and riding our horses around this beautiful country of ours Jim and I have seen some of the best trails this country has to offer. We have traveled from the east to the west, north to the south, and everything in between. Our love of traveling and our passion for trail riding even led us to sell our home, store our belongings, and explore the country for over five years as full-time RV'ers. What a life we have.

There is nothing that I enjoy more than trail riding. In fact, that is all Jim, my husband, and I do. Our life is literally trail riding and traveling the country with our horses. "Seeing the country from the back of my horse" is more than just a statement of fact, it is our "way of life". As we all know trail riding has become one of the fastest growing past times for the equestrian. What better way to enjoy life, this great country, and your favorite equine friend than on the trail of your choice.
ACTHA’s President Robin Tilghman, and current president of the Equestrian Medical Safety Association Dr. Debbie Stanitski have announced they have joined forces in creating a liaison for the promotion of rider helmets, accident prevention, risk reduction and safety on the trail.
Following previous gatherings ACTHA conducted yet another weekend workshop at noted Morning Star Ranch in Milano Texas. Ride hosts from near and far gathered at this popular ride venue to learn the latest and greatest improvements to the ACTHA formats.

Noted American author Henry David Thoreau wrote “If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours”. And how successful and unexpected would Jody Childs’ life become, after she attended her first ACTHA ride in April 2010.

“Please make my check out to my husband.” How many of us would love to repay our husband, our wife, our significant other, our parents or our friends for their undying love and support for our own personal journey. A journey that not only encompasses many years of hard work and sacrifice, but many hours spent on the road to fulfill that dream.
