Today we decided to ride up to Horse Thief Springs. A 13 mile round trip. It was a calm, sunny day and unseasonably cool (High of 83°) for July in Oklahoma - which is why we planned the trip in the first place. The camp only hosted one other pair of trail riders at the time, being the off season and during the week. Our camp hostess D'Anna was very welcoming and helpful as we made sure to do a better job picking her brain on ride options before heading out.
You can always tell when someone puts their heart and soul into a business and she maintained an excellent campground and trails. With over 50 miles of trails accessible from her camp ground, all of which she put in and maintains herself, is mind-boggling to me but she does an excellent job keeping up with the place. The bath house, built by D'Anna herself, was very clean and the outhouse was spick-and-span as well. I can attest how nice a shower feels after a long trail ride!
Sue stayed in the RV, which is a good option if you don't have a LQ trailer. It wasn't fancy but again, it was clean and worked just fine for our purposes.
The horses handled their overnight accommodations well. I only wish I had brought a few more shavings because the ground was very hard in the pens but they didn't seem too bothered. The pens were also a nice size (12x12 probably) and that always helps keep the horses from getting too stoved up overnight. I also really liked that since I had a hookup (which included water and electric) the horse pens were right on my sight. It was extremely convenient for doing chores. D'Anna also supplied good wheel barrows for mucking the stalls which made that task much easier.
