    Default Oct 3rd Trail Ride Warm Springs GA

    The Good Shepherd Therapeutic Center in Warm Springs is having a benefit ride on Oct 3rd. There is a $25.00 registration fee and lunch is included. I wondered if anyone else planned on going?

    FDR is VERY rocky, shoes or boots are a MUST. They have 4 trails. The lake trail is not to bad. The cowboy & coyote trails are tough. The rocks are big enough to actually roll out from under your horse. I am not crazy about the footing there. But it is for a good cause.

    It is in Rome. I have always wanted to go on that ride. I may go if several of my friends go otherwise I will head to Warm Springs.

    BTW it is not at FDR Park it is on the grounds of the Good Shepherd center.

    The farm is beautiful and not too hilly, from what I remember it has good trails and lovely scenery. I may go since it is less than 45 minutes away from me.

    Equibrit -- do you have info on the hunter pace you could send me? I'm thinking I'll send my mom and her friend down to Warm Springs for the benefit trail ride [more her pace] while a friend and I head to Kingston Downs for the hunter pace [more our pace].

    Any info you have would be great! Thanks

    The warm spring ride is at Good Shepherd not fdr. Although I'm only 30 min. from gs I've never ridden their trails but from what I hear it's nothing like fdr.

    LOVE fdr by the way. Horse's with reasonable feet can ride the creek and lake trail without shoes but I agree with you the cowboy and coyote you need shoes or boots for sure.

    Can someone post the actual time, location or contact number for the Good Shepherd ride? We are only 45 minutes from Warm Springs. It would be nice to meet up with other Georgia folks.
