Hi,
I am planning on riding the shore-to-shore next September. I will only be able to do one way of the double cross. Can anyone give me pros and cons of riding north to south or east to west? Are the trails comparable, etc?
Thank you,
Ellen

West to East the sun is in your eyes every morning. North/South some of the rides have more miles than some of the East/West. There are more bugs (nats)on the East side. The West side the lake breezes seem to keep them off. OTOH it's all good fun and YMMV. This is only my experience.

North to south has a whole lot more road riding than the west to east trail.

I am looking for a horse to buy. Gelding and under 10 yrs. preferred. Nothing fancy needed, just a solid trail horse for camping, etc. I do like a confident type that doesn't mind going off on it's own. Also must have some go, as my TWH mare moves out and covers a lot of ground. I am not a horse trader, looking for a horse to keep forever. He will have a good home, plenty of pasture, and indoor stall when then weather turns bad.

Interested in riding the Pine Marten Trail in the UP next year. Also looking to stay at Kenbuck's in Wetmore. What is the riding like at Pine Marten and has anymore stayed at Kenbuck with their horses? Looks like a nice place.

Pine Martin is gorgeous! Miles and miles of trails, lots of trees and some very scenic little lakes. It is pretty secluded; I always look over my shoulder for bears or cougars! Definitely worth the trip to the UP smile I've never stayed at Kenbuck, but I've vacationed in the area for my entire 30+ years of life. We have a family cabin about 6 miles from Kenbuck. The area is great, beautiful woods everywhere - it is pretty much in the middle of nowhere! There are a few little stores somewhat nearby for snacks and necessities. I'd highly suggest the Midway General Store for ice cream and pasties!

I live about 3 hours from the Pine Marten and it's an absolutely gorgeous trail system! I've attached the link for more info. I have never stayed at Kenbuck's Resort though. There is a trailhead that is free of charge with a water pump and a vault toilet. You high-line your horses in the trees. The trail-head camping are is quite large but can fill up fast. Have a great time!

Where to ride during hunting season in Michigan other than Elba?

During gun season, there is no place to ride safe Nov 1st to 15th Other than that everywhere you normally ride. Oct 1st to Nov 15 there is some hunting season open. I wear bright colors orange saddle blanket on my horse and Bear bells on my horse from Jay's sporting goods. Jerry Gaylord.

MSU has an equestrian team. Those horses must live somewhere. I bet you could contact someone from there and they could refer you. Google MSU equestrian team.
Good Luck

Not sure but think the horse trails at Fort Custer in Battle Creek are no shooting area. Check their website under DNR. Get a few big bangs now and then when the military is practicing, but at least they aren't shooting at the trails.

I have an MSU vet student leasing my mare and she's looking for a place near the college to keep her. A very mature and responsible young woman. Doesn't have to be a large or fancy facility, just one that's clean, safe and looked after. Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

I see the changes, but I am wondering, If this website is no longer affiliated with the MTRA any more, Then Why is there still a link to it on the MTRA website???

After consideration of many emails from Forum users, I have decided to waive the membership fee. You will be able to post messages as you always have, except that messages will be reviewed before they are posted.

For advertisements, there will be a charge of $5-25 on a sliding scale depending on the price of the product being sold. Payment will be by PayPal

When you think about it, $25 dollars is a small price to pay when you are selling a $20,000 trailer!

I hope you understand that there are costs in time and money involved in running the Forum and ads can no longer be free. These changes will take place immediately.

The Michigan Horse Forum is no longer affiliated with the MTRA. I can no longer make the Forum available free of charge. There are expenses in both time and money involved in keeping the Forum on the net. The cost to become a member is less than three cents a day! If it is not worth that to people who have used the Forum and posted nearly 7000 ads and messages over the years, then the Forum will go away.

I hope you will see the value of keeping the Forum going and support the Forum with your membership.

Amazing horse for a special girl. My daughter Saige just lost her best friend to colic. Sable and Saige completed the second June ride. Saige was so proud of her mare!

We are heartbroken at Sable's loss, but would like to find a new friend for Saige.

There are some big horse shoes to fill:
Saige would like a horse to trail ride, but also to show on her school's equestrian team. Show experience with western, English and simple jumping desired. Must be level headed, kind hearted and willing to be a friend to a great kid.

Good home with lots of love await the right horse.
