Saddle Up in South Dallas!

June 11th, 2013 | by The Update
Saddle Up in South Dallas - Great Trinity Forest Gateway and Horse Trails - Horseback Riding, Dallas Parks

When you talk to someone who isn’t from ’round these parts and tell them you’re a Texan, it’s not uncommon for them to ask if you ride horses around town (and wear a cowboy hat and boots everywhere, and encounter tumbleweeds on your way to work…) Well, now there’s a place where even “city-folk” can enjoy a good ol’ fashioned horseback ride in south Dallas!

From NBC DFW:

The city of Dallas has a new gem to show off and even those who helped make it happen say it’s not what you might expect to find here.

The Great Trinity Forest Gateway and Horse Trails opened Saturday off I-20 and Dowdy Ferry Road.  This long-time coming project is taking no time to hook people in.

“We came down, we got all our stuff, we got our lunch, had breakfast and we got our reels, our worms, our bait and we’re gonna fish,” said Jerutha Pratt, flanked by her two sisters. “The park is very beautiful. It’s nice out here.”

Pratt said she plans to come out at least two or three days a week. She said it’s nice not having to drive dozens of miles to go fish.

“Kind of amazing that right in the center of South Dallas you’ve got an oasis,” said Deputy Mayor Pro Tem, Tennell Atkins. “It’s for families, horses, walking, you can fish… You’ve got trails so it’s cheap entertainment.”

Those trails will eventually hook up with the Texas Horse Park, White Rock Lake and Downtown. Click here to keep reading on NBC DFW.
