Wrangler Randy Mittelstadt takes guests on a horseback riding vacation at Sunriver Stables
Horseback riding in Deschutes National Forest
We saddled up with a wrangler in front of us and a wrangler at the end of the line. We rode our horses by the Deschutes river, over Cardinal Landing Bridge and into the Deschutes National Forest. Home to deer, elk, bobcats, hawks and owls, among other creatures, we rode in harmony with nature and little clouds of late summer dust. The horses weaved through Ponderosa pine and manzanita until the sky opened up for non-stop views from atop Ramsey Ridge.
Sunriver Stables well behaved horses
The Sunriver Stables horses are so well behaved that I had trouble asking my horse, Fargo, to step out of line for a photograph.
