Theodore Roosevelt National Park

To this day, when most people think of Teddy Roosevelt they picture him astride a horse, and the national park created in his honor holds to the highest standard of adventurous horseback riding. The entire park is open to horses, except for developed nature trails. Be it by trail or crosscountry, horseback riding in the very same land that Roosevelt once traveled is a must for riding enthusiasts.
