GALLERY: Horseback Riding Texas

Horses are trained and ridden for practical working purposes, such as in police work or for controlling herd animals on a ranch. They are also used in competitive sports including, but not limited to, dressage, endurance riding, eventing, reining, show jumping, tent pegging, vaulting, polo, horse racing, driving, and rodeo (see additional equestrian sports listed later in this article for more examples). Some popular forms of competition are grouped together at horse shows where horses perform in a wide variety of disciplines. Horses (and other equids such as mules) are used for non-competitive recreational riding such as fox hunting, trail riding, or hacking. There is public access to horse trails in almost every part of the world; many parks, ranches, and public stables offer both guided and independent riding. Horses are also used for therapeutic purposes both in specialized para-equestrian competition as well as non-competitive riding to improve human health and emotional development.

Bring your own horse out to the 100-acre South Primitive Area at Dinosaur Valley State Park . This area is just for horseback riding, and has no marked trails. The terrain is wooded and semi-rocky, and the Paluxy River crosses it. A parking area for horse trailers is available; but potable water is not. Horses can drink river water, but you must bring your own bucket. Rest­rooms without showers are located in the day-use area of the park.
