Westcreek Horse Trails- The Best in San Antonio

For as long as I can remember I have always loved horses but my love of them was at a distance. I mean the closest I had come to a horse was feeding one through a fence. I had never had the opportunity to actually ride one. Well, that was all about to change because I had found a real hidden treasure right here in San Antonio, Westcreek Trail Rides. I was so excited to find them because I wanted my children to get the experience the thrill of horseback riding.

Why go horseback riding?

Well, for one it’s fun and exciting but did you know that with that fun and excitment there are many benefits of horseback riding? For one, horseback riding  takes place outdoors which is always a plus in my book. But, there are many more benefits to horseback riding. Many see horse riding as being very therapeutic especially  if you and your children are wanting to unwind after a long week at the office and school. Nothing beats holding on to the reins and letting the horse take you on this amazing ride.

Now, when you are on a horse you must balance yourself. This was a hard one for the little ones at the beginning but they had it down in no time. You just become one with the horse it is amazing! Going on trails is a great time for you and your family work on their patience. The horses walk at a normal pace and it is just amazing it not have a care in the world for that 1 hour.

If you are ready to experience all the benefits of horseback riding, then come for a ride at Westcreek Trail Rides.

Why choose Westcreek Trail Rides?

When we were looking for Westcreek I was sure we had taken a wrong turn somewhere because we were in a neighborhood. I was certain Google Maps was taking us to the wrong place. Boy was I wrong. We followed the road to a dead-end and that was where we came upon the most lovely little ranch.

There are many stables and sheds. They have a few picnic tables and chairs to sit outside. There are bails and bails of hay at the entrance it is the perfect place for a photo-op. . The smell of country filled the area. It is a beautiful place.

When you arrive you are greeted by friendly staff. They have you check in and sign liability waivers. Then, they take you to where the horses are waiting. Our horses were already saddled and waiting. They helped each of us on and made sure that the kids foot holders were just the right size for each of them.

Once you are on the horse the guides show you how to stop, turn and make the horses go faster. The kids were so excited to be on the horses for the first time ever. The look on there faces was priceless. The guides go on to tell you the basic rules of the tour. Nothing hard at all. Then you are on your way.

The path itself is beautiful. The trees cover the trail. There are many dips along the way. It is so much fun! So peaceful. You really would not believe that you are about 10 minutes away from Sea World San Antonio!! The trails give you the feeling of being out in the middle of the country.
