Located in southern Illinois, the Shawnee National Forest lies between the mighty Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. It has some of the most beautiful scenery in the Midwest. A great way to see some of the unique rock formations, caves, spectacular bluffs and canyons, is on horseback. Horseback riding is a tradition in this part of the state, and, Wendy of Honey Bee Stables provides a great guided ride. She knows all the great spots to see, and, the interesting facts of the area. Southern Illinois’ mild winters make riding possible all year-round. Every time of the year is beautiful in the forest. A great advantage of winter riding that I noticed, was, no bugs! You can design you own ride, a ½ day or full day. We rode most of the day, and, enjoyed a great picnic lunch. Book a ride today: (618) 638-8059
Enjoy Southern Illinois!
