    So Mafiaprincess and I headed to the Sandaraska park on Wed to camp with a couple of horses and ride in the ganaraska forest. Its an 11,000 acre forest full of sand trails. I grew up hacking out and still enjoy trailering out. But this is the first time I have ever camped. Maf borrowed Esher (owned by Freehold :) ) and I took my 'new' horse Mudd as Senn's feet aren't 100% Mudd was given to me just over a week before we left. He is a 16 yr old 16.2 and a bit hh ottb. It was a LOT of fun, anyone who enjoys trails and is in Ontario should check it out.



    They have pens set up, you can get 2, 3 or 4 pens on a site. Esher in a pen

    That looks and sounds so enjoyable! Beautiful horses, too. I wish I knew outdoorsy people. And horse people. A camping trip like yours sounds about perfect to me. I miss riding so much.

    Gorgeous horses, and it looks like an awesome place to camp!

    I LOVE camping, adding horses into the mix is like frosting on fudge! LOL We have been camping several times this season already, I'd love to be there right now but we are under droubt conditions, extreme heat, and also an open fire/burn ban :(
