I don't quite know how to answer your question. There is a man in Belfast Willie Poteete that has horses and trail rides every weekend. I don't know if the place we went is open to the public or to those with Willie. Willie has made many of the trails on the hills. The trails we rode were very steep and rocky also. I can give you his number if you like.
I don't have a horse to ride yet, but a friend did give me a 9 month old colt. i have so very much to learn. I have time now as my children are grown and my husband is deceased. I am looking for a new passion for me. right now i am just trying to find out if this is something i want to do before investing a lot of money into it. I am hoping to go to some of the organized trail rides in the area.
