Over Night camping trips are available in Sam Houston National Forest, Little Lake Creek Wilderness or at Lake Somerville, Nails Creek Equine Camp Ground.  Each location offers different accomodations.  Packages are available with food, camping gear, etc. provided or you can supply the required items and save on the cost of the trip.  All packages include a horse for each rider, all the required tack, care for the horses through out the trip, and an experienced guide.  Packages start at $225 per person for a 24hr period.
 
Sam Houston National Forest
 
Located just north of Montgomery, Texas is primitive camping.  We must carry all supplies in by horseback.  There is no running water, electricity, bath rooms, etc.  The camping area is located along side Lake Conroe which offers fishing, swimming, night time camp fires and evening horseback riding.
 
Lake Somerville 
 
Located off Hwy 290 past Brenham, Texas has established camp sites with running water, electricity, public rest rooms and showers, mile marked trails, etc.   While this location is less primative and has the basic needs available  the cost is greater for this trip due to the additional distance and cost of the camp sites.  Prices begin at $300.00 for a 24 hr period.   This site offers swimming, fishing evening horseback riding, sites with picnic tables and above ground grills, etc.   We are unable to build on ground bond fires at this site due to park restrictions.

Work To Ride Program

There is currently a few slots open for our work to ride program.  This is a program designed to help persons who have a real interest in working with horses, are not afraid of hard work, and can't afford the expense of paying for riding.  After every 4 hours of work performed by the worker they will receive 1 hour of either riding lessons or free time riding at our barn.  Hours may be stacked and after the accumulation of 12 hours the worker may opt to go on one of our guided rides (availability permitting).
 
The work at a barn is not easy work and consisted of cleaning stalls, picking up and stacking wood in burn piles, cleaning spider webs, grooming horses and other horse related activities as needed.
 
For consideration in this program please fill out the application below.
