A taste of the pure wild: why you should choose horse trails in national parks of the US
All across the world, people love horses with an enthusiasm that has been consistent for centuries. Horses have become a part of the transport industry, farming practices, and sports cultures. Since the ancient Greco-Roman cultures, our equine friends have enjoyed a particular social status that no other intelligent animal has seen. Horses have been a man’s friend, support, and transport in the direst of situations.
In the 21st century, not a lot of communities rely on horses exclusively for transportation. However, they have remained significant for their confident gait and unique bond with humankind. They are now an exclusive part of sports, travel, tourism, and entertainment across all the states of the US. Most importantly, they have become a part of national park experiences and wildlife safaris across several countries.
Which national parks should you check out for trail rides?
Orlando, South and North Carolina, Florida and California have several organisations that offer horseback rides into the wilderness for nature lovers, animal behaviourists, ornithologists, camping enthusiasts, and naturalists. Yosemite, Yellowstone, Bryce Canyon National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park and Grand Canyon National Park are the top contenders for your attention this year.
What’s so great about horse safari rides?
There is nothing more enthralling than witnessing the fantastic bounties of nature while being a part of it. Jeeps and SUVs may give you a more comfortable ride into the interior of the jungles, but none are as quiet and confident as your faithful equine friend in comparison.
Why choose a horse as your ride into the wilderness?
Horses blend right in with the greenery of the forests and woods; this provides the perfect camouflage for the visitors waiting to catch one leap off the lithe leopard or a flight of a puma. Capturing bears, herons, egrets and wild cats become a lot easier when your ride has a sure footing and a familiar scent.
