Trail riding in Kentucky is accessible, family friendly, and can be easy on the wallet. There are currently 229 riding trails offering more than 1,913 miles throughout Kentucky.
I tested many of the trails myself, while filming "Equitrekking Kentucky," a high-definition episode of Equitrekking
, my Emmy-winning television series on PBS.
As a part of my job for Equitrekking
, I ride horses with locals around the world. I found great horses and riders all over Kentucky, from state parks and recreation areas to farms and historic villages.
For a rundown of four riding locations where you can bring your own horse or ride one of the outfitter's well-trained horses to explore Kentucky from the saddle, see The Trail Rider
, April 2011.
Here's a video clip from the PBS television show Equitrekking on trail-riding in Kentucky.
