You can really get the feel of country living by riding horseback on the extensive trails of Shangrila Guest Ranch, just two miles from our bed & breakfast. Pickett rides the wooded paths regularly, enjoying the scenic outdoors the way people used to before motor vehicles were invented. For $40 an hour, visitors can be led by experienced guides who know the horses and scenic routes that go past ponds, forests, wildlife and open fields. They can sign up for one-hour, partial-day or all-day excursions. Children will like the farm animals and a group hayride that is available.
You can also get horseback riding at Shangrila as part of an outdoors package at Oak Grove Plantation Bed & Breakfast. For $308, a couple can get two nights at Oak Grove, a one-hour trail ride or hayride, a 15-minute reiki treatment and a 2-5 mile hike along out shaded, wooded trails.
So gallop on down here and be a cowboy or cowgirl for an hour or more, then enjoy the relaxed atmosphere at Oak Grove.
