One of our favorite vacation activities is horseback riding. While these pictures are from Wisconsin, we’ve found reputable riding establishments in both Colorado and Wisconsin. In some respects, it helps give you a glimpse into the past when the pace of life was quite a bit slower. Whether hiking or on horseback, it’s good to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and get out into nature. On this particular trip, I think the horses knew the well worn paths almost too well. My horse knew all too well where to stop for the juiciest, grassy, snacks.
