He will truly get what he wants with total satisfaction, especially during weekends.
If you intend to have a weekend horseback riding while staying in a Branson Cabin, the following famous trails are recommended:
Uncle Like Trail Rides. This is located along the Ozark ridges and mountains. The escort and guide are great. They will guide you along the 2-mile trek passing on through creeks and streams, and you will get a different and exciting experience. The price ranges from $25 - $ 70 , depending upon other conditions that you may agree with the guide and yourself. The place is just near Silver Dollar City.
Dogwood Canyon. As the name implies, you will a have a trail most passing on canyons and waterfalls, ridges. You will get to see wildlife animals, but they are safe. The exhilarating views, good weather, stunning beauty and good weather will give you utmost enjoyment you will never forget. The price also ranges from $ 25 - $ 70, depending on the set conditions.
Other suggested sites are Cedar Mountain Stables, where you horseback passing on big cedar trees, with its soothing scents and cool feeling, shady trails which will make your horse also enjoy and feel better to load you with no difficulty; the Bear Creek Trail Rides, owned by a group of families. They cater to you also who are in group as one family. Their horses are gentle and their prices are reasonable.
There are other various trails you could choose. Those enumerated above are just a few, but popular. Take extra care however on the choice of your horses, some are gentle, some are not. To avoid a fall, it is recommended to bring with you some first-aid meds, but definitely the escort and guide have some readily to take care of you. But, such an incident is rare. As you know, sometimes an animal, especially a horse straddles, have a moody mind too. It is just a precautionary measure for you.
Available foods are on the trails you pass by as there are restaurants and snack houses along the roads. Easy prices are all okay and I suggest you also bring enough bottled waters. You will be trekking some steep and rugged trails. Take extra care on deep ravines or canyons. But anyway, all of the trails are safely installed with steel fences to protect you and the horse.
For added interest while you horseback, you will have the chance to stop and see the nature animals like wild deer, chickens and other living creatures that ply along the vast lands and mountains of Branson. Your experience will add more to your knowledge especially learning on the habitats sprawling the place. You feel stunned and with great enjoyment. You will be tempted to get a feel and touch them as some are tamed, but others do not. Remember, do not attempt to hurt nor hunt them as there are forest guards around. For your own safety and security, the trail guides and escorts are there to protect you and give you extra care.
The best horseback riding schedules are in the morning and late afternoon. Horses in here were already rested on the previous days' schedule. Being prepared for their next schedule during early morning by their handlers, have definitely made the horses well rested and ready for another job.
The same is through during late afternoons. These horses have got some extra rest. For you to rent on this particular time schedules, you will not get any hassles when you do the actual horseback riding. Enjoy horseback riding while in the Branson Mountains, hills, creeks, canyons, rivers and brooks!
