Riding the Trails in Maine

Oct 28, 2013 Author Guy

Had a business trip to Maine and I thought it would be good to meet up with some friends in the area. We haven’t seen each other in over 2 years and I planned my trip so I could spend two whole days with them.

Took the girls horseback riding at Camp Fairhaven in Brooks, Maine. We had a total BLAST. It was affordable, which helped the old wallet, and the staff were relaxed and very casual about everything. They didn’t make us ride single file on the trail like some places do, and we didn’t have to just walk on the trail – we took a side path for a short distance and found a big flat granite rock to sit on and appreciate the view.

They let us experiment with handling our horses and jumped in to help when the girls got nervous or had any questions. They even let us unsaddle and brush down the horses, which some people might think is just work or chores, but for us it was a treat to spend the time with animals and help take care of them.

It was a good day – I hope I’m not too sore tomorrow!
