Ride The Western Trails Publications
Horse Trails of "Colorful" Colorado
Colorado is known to have many trails but finding them can be a problem. These handy books, written exclusively for the horseback rider, puts all of the information in one place: yet are small enough to pack in your saddlebag.
The trails described represent the level of difficulty from competitive trail riders to beginning flat land trail riders and everything in-between. Each trail's name, location, length, level of difficulty, elevation, general trail descriptions and map is included. Numerous pictures illustrate the parking areas, terrain and obstacles associated with each trail. I chose to reference exact mileage of the trail rather than time which I find very misleading since each rider travels at different speeds and may pause or stop along the trail.
My intent with these books is to provide the trail rider with factual data along with pictorial information. Books that rely more on a private interpretation to convey information in a story type of format are often inadequate. On the other hand, pictures speak for themselves and provide volumes of information in any language to fully describe the pertinent information necessary to the rider.
The trails I have included are a respectable representation of what Colorado truly has to offer. I believe these trails provide a more rewarding experience than flatland, metropolitan trails even though I do include a select few for variety and year round riding when the weather restricts the use of more mountainous terrain.
Since many riders are traveling from all areas within Colorado along with those coming from other states, I initially reference major arteries easily located on any road map. This accommodates all potential riders regardless of where their trip is originating.
Included is contact information for nearby vets, farriers, stables, bed & breakfasts and feed and tack stores. Trail etiquette is addressed as well as suggested tack and other articles for your saddlebags. Even your horse trailer contents are reviewed.
