Horse Riding

Riding the trailsThough horse trails are shared with other users, most riders find the network of horse trails on the Forest to be an excellent system of loops and camps to enjoy the outdoors on horseback.

A permit is required for trail riding on the Hoosier National Forest. Riders must bring their own horses. There are no stables available with horses to rent on the Forest.
