Horseback Riding in Big Bear

“Last week I decided to take a trip and go horseback riding in Big Bear to visit the trees and just get away from all the smog and concrete. Now this wasn’t my first time up to Big Bear Lake but it was definitely the first time I actually wanted to get physical and be active. Most of my trips consist of small trail walks, a nice seat by Big Bear lake, tranquil and peaceful moments. This time however I was feeling a bit spontaneous and I decided to try out Baldwin Lake Stables.  It was easy to get to from my Big Bear cabin rental.

I have been horse back riding for fifteen years now but never have I experienced such a perfectly beautiful trail ride. The folks at the stables are very hospitable and informative. Even though I assured them how good of a rider I am, they insisted on SAFETY FIRST. They went on with the spiel of rules and basic horse control. Then.. we were off into the sunset! We went on a two hour ride through the San Bernardino National Forest and even took a short break for pictures and to let our steeds rest. Never have I felt so unified with nature; nothing but the sound of hoof to rock, and the wind through the pines. At that point I had established a ritual; from now on I will visit those stables every trip I make to Big Bear. I am so grateful to have such a fond memory.”
