A short drive off the metal'd highway is all it took to take us away to another time and another place hidden away in the Texan countryside. Hill Country Equestrian Lodge is a superb antidote to the hectic hustle and bustle of modern living. But don't be fooled into thinking that this is some kind of "back to nature" rough living experience. From the idyllic surroundings to the warm welcome and the stunning accomodation your every need is catered for. There is something for everyone whether it's relaxing by the pool or in the hot tub, telling tall tales round a fire under the Texas stars or riding the trails on the most responsive horses around.
We were in the USA on a two week vacation from Wales and decided to spend a few days with Dianne and Peter sampling something of the ranch lifestyle. Our experience at the Hill Country Equestrian Lodge surpassed all our expectations. As a family of four with two teenage boys we rented one of the superb cottages and took our first novice horseriding steps under the tutelage of Dianne and Shannon. We rode out in the early morning and again at dusk. Both trail rides gave us different experiences and both rides gave us an opportunity to see the wonderful Hill Country as it is meant to be viewed, from the saddle. Our intelligent, patient mounts - Jack, Smoky, Molly and Fancy - took great care of us every step of the way even though I'm sure they realised that we weren't the most experienced (or maybe because they realised we weren't the most experienced!). You guys rocked (but fortunately not too much)!
If you're looking for a chance to escape the pressures of modern living for a few days and you don't want to rough it; if you want something to do that's a little different or if you just want to spend some quality time with the people who are most important to you then get down to The Hill Country Equestrian Lodge. You really can't go wrong.
