Well, at least it’s new to me. Ever since I have been riding horses I have always wanted to ride, what some of my equestrian friends say, is the best place for “moving out” on your horse. Why? Well, H Cooper Black Memorial Field and Recreation Center is completely sandy and clear, all 7,000 acres.
For 20 miles you can clip right along and not have to worry much about obstacles. The park is known far and wide in Chesterfield county for field and trail dog sports but is quickly becoming a go to destination for horse lovers, trail riders and campers. This was a total change of pace for me, normally I gravitate to parks with hills, mountains and streams. This is different.
Word to the wise, if you want to go for any activity go in the Winter, Spring or Fall. I hear the summers are brutal. To learn more about this amazing park just check out their website right here
My friends and neighbors, Jeff and Rosie invited me to ride there this weekend and happily tagged along. Here are a few pics. Hope you enjoy them~
