Out of the armchair and into the saddle! Oct 13, 2004
I've lived in Wisconsin for 7 years and had no idea how many equestrian pleasures were all around me. Well written, with great pictures, this book is a real inspiration to get out of the armchair and into the saddle. I selected a trail ride for a troop of Girl Scouts based on the book's description and found it right on the mark - the stable was exactly as described and the girls had a great time. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes horses and can imagine themselves seeing more of the State on horseback.

This book is fantastic! The author has been incredibly thorough in her research of the best horse stables, barns and trails around Wisconsin. It's well organized so information can easily be found depending on what part of the state you live in or are visiting. I especially liked all the added details such as which barns or trails were good for kids. She has even included therapeutic riding stables and what they offer. I haven't seen anything like this guide available anywhere. Even the pictures are great and add a lot to the book. I recommend this book to anyone interested in riding or getting their kids involved in riding.
