Horseback Riding at Wrangler Campground


Yesterday we decided to go horseback riding at a place we've never visited before - the Wranglers Campground at LBL.

We had reservations for 9 am, so we left the house at 7:45 because I wanted to stop and grab a geocache along the way.  I mean, I do have priorities!  The first cache of the day was called Hitch and Hide and was located outside a small, quaint grouping of country stores.



The cache itself was a quick find and a nice size cache container....



We locked up Chablis in the punishment post....  She wasn't liking it too much!


Last April I wrote about an accident on Kentucky Lake where a barge smashed into the Eggner Ferry Bridge and a section of the bridge collapsed.  The bridge has since been repaired and is open again for business.....



At 8:50 we pulled up at the stables....


They had our 3 horses saddled up and ready to go.



Chablis & Kyle were excited about going.  Kyle hasn't been on a horse in about 10 years, and had gotten thrown off his horse when we took him that time.  I was determined that he have another go at it and have a positive experience this time.  My nephew is so trusting of me!


Heading out.....


Wranglers Campground has beautiful horses and some terrific trails.  We had a very knowledgeable guide named Miranda, who was just as charming and as sweet as can be.  We took the 1 1/2 hour ride and the 2 of us chatted almost constantly the entire time.


The trails were a nice variety of fields and wooded areas, as well as crossing a creek bed and some nice views of Lake Barkley.





Kyle relaxed pretty quickly and began to enjoy the ride and Chablis will take any opportunity to get her picture taken....







The 90 minute ride went by very quickly.  We decided that we'd all go back there and do it again some time. I highly recommend Wranglers Campground for horseback riding.  The folks who run it were extremely nice, the place was clean and well organized, the prices were good and the horses well cared for.  They get high 5's from me!

Afterwards we stopped and grabbed a couple more geocaches before heading back home....



This is the view from Eggner Ferry Bridge looking north on Kentucky Lake....


And here's a shot of the new section of the bridge.....



Tomorrow - water skiing!!
