Horseback Riding in the Rocky Mountains

Apr 9, 2008
The world is an often hectic and troublesome place to be at times. Work can get you down and bog your mind with all sorts of stresses. Relationships can work you up into a frenzy just to leave you hanging out there on a limb wondering where on Earth the time went and where you went. Sometimes we lose track of our lives and forget who were really are inside. There is not much in this world that we can do in order to get that back.

However, we need serenity and peace of mind to function in our daily lives. There's no sense in just waiting for the next thing to happen without trying to calm down the frenzy we are already experiencing. If we do that, we've simply given into the stress we experience and the resulting confusion. If that happens, there's no telling what else will happen. Relationships will suffer, and so will work.

So what can you do in order to try and get back some of that - if just a small piece of sanity in an otherwise insane life. Nature has always been a great joy of mine. I find it quite soothing to walk among the trees and wildlife just taking all of God's creation in. It is a tremendous feeling to know that you are witness to a real miracle. What could make this miracle all the more pleasing and splendid then experiencing it with one of God's most beautiful creatures?

Horseback riding is one way that we can get back in touch with nature. There is solitude, solace and joy in knowing that we are riding on top of a gorgeous animal that has roamed these same mountains for hundreds of years. The American Indians worshiped the horse, and this relationship has been sacred to them since they first came into contact with each other so many years ago. Horses are domestic animals in some cases, yes, but they love and work hard, and they love the wilderness as we do.

In the Rocky Mountains, you as the horseback rider can see scenery that you'll only see in works of art otherwise. In the land, you'll see wonder and miracles you can't see anywhere else. Once you mount your trusty horse, you can ride slowly through the brush and gallop on open plains that themselves lead you to mountains that give no human any better vista. Your horse, too, will enjoy the ride as you go together through the brush. This is how you take in the Rocky Mountains' scenery in the best way.

There is more than just slow, easy riding. You can gallop and run through the plains leading up to the great Rocky Mountains. Depending on the horse you have you can even do a bit of mountain climbing on the easy trails to get the best view imaginable of the world around you that goes on until time ends. The American Indians view this area as a place of the living spirits - you will see what they mean and, more importantly, feel what they mean. The spirits of ancient ancestors will undoubtedly imbue you with a sense of peace, clarity and well being.
