Horseback riding vacation in central Oregon
Like a kid on a merry go round, I keep circling back to my childhood memories of Sunriver Resort. As I happily sit perched on a pony, waving madly to my parents each time I circle around, I had no idea the important role horses would play in my youth and adult life. I hold tight to my Sunriver family memories, like a new rider clutching the leather reins, one hand gripping the saddle horn, feet firmly planted in the stirrups. These are my hazy memories of central Oregon horseback riding that I carry with me today.
Central Oregon horseback riding
Horseback riding in central Oregon is fabulous in the summertime. Deer roam at a leisurely pace in the Deschutes National Forest and the horses relax into trail rides along the Deschutes River. The wranglers at Sunriver Stables are friendly and like me, they are happy to be surrounded by horses, the scent of leather and sunscreen hang in the still air.
