any horse folks out there?

We recently bought some land in Silver (not zoned for horses, unfortunately). I am trying to get an idea of what the horse community is like in Silver, as well find out about any special health/care concerns.

Any local shows - if so, what type? Best places to ride? How is trailer access? Any place to carriage drive? Local riding clubs? Any health problems, besides the need for Psyllium? I know of one riding stable – do any of you know of more and have recommendations? Any other Morgan owners out there?

Thank you!

Jerri:

Since you mentioned being in touch with Ralph Gauer in your other Silver City post, I suggest that he might be a good resource for equine info. Also, Leah Jones at Gila Wilderness Ventures in nearby Glenwood may be able to answer questions; she runs day rides, pack trips and even sets up drop camps in the area so she is well-versed in horse lore (whereas I barely know one end of a horse from the other).
