English Riding in North Texas
You can’t think about Texas without picturing cowboys on horseback. Horses were a way of life for Texans not so long ago. Nowadays, we may not go to town on horseback, but we still love to saddle up. Horseback riding in Texas was traditionally Western riding, but these days there are a variety of English riding disciplines. You’ll find Hunter Jumper, Dressage, and Eventing barns. There are boarding stables for leisure riders and show barns for competitive riders. For the young athlete, North Texas has eight IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association) barns. Hunter Jumper showing is available through the NTHJC (North Texas Hunter Jumper Club) and THJA (Texas Hunter Jumper Assocation). There are two area dressage clubs (Dallas Dressage Club & Fort Worth Dressage Club), and dressage showing is through the USDF Region 9. The North Texas Eventing Assocation (NTEA) has USEA Recognized Horse Trails, Schooling Horse Trails, and other shows throughout the year.
Horseback Riding Trails
In addition to competitive riding, there are some trails for leisure riding. The Town of Flower Mound has equestrian trails and several more miles of trails planned with future development. In addition, the Corps of Engineers maintain equestrian trails along Lake Grapevine. If you enjoy trail riding, learn more about North Texas trails from the Cross Timbers Equestrian Trail Association.
Live close to Stables and Farms
Flower Mound, Argyle and Bartonville are highly desirable places to live. Prime location, rolling hills, native oak trees, and sandy loam soil make this the perfect spot in DFW for horseback riders. You can live close to the horse stables and close to work. From the Flower Mound area, commute times to Fort Worth and Dallas are reasonable. A commute from Flower Mound to Fort Worth is approximately 35 minutes and approximately 40 minutes to downtown Dallas. Aubrey, Burleson, Fort Worth, Pilot Point, and Weatherford are other towns with horse stables and trainers. Give me a call if you are considering a relocation to Dallas-Fort Worth.
