Malia's Notes: on
OK State Parks

Thunderbird Stables was close by the campground I stayed at during my visit to Lake Thunderbird State Park. I hadn't been on a horse in over 20 years, but it sounded like fun and I'm glad I listened to that little voice in my head that told me so. Owners Bobby & Cindy Steveson have run this operation for 22 years, so I felt like I was in good hands when I told Cindy I was at least a notch below "inexperienced" when she asked my level of competence.
She put me on a sweet, gentle guy named Dakota. I think he sensed I didn't know what I was doing, but he didn't hold it against me.
Their rides are generally self-guided and the horses know the trail real well, but I felt much better when a very nice couple from Norman, Joe & Allisha Aguayo, offered to let me tag along with them.
Allisha took this photo of me and Joe at a rest stop. They told me they like to come here because it's much easier than owning your own horse and all the work that comes with it.
It was a nice, easy-going ride down the shaded trail. We saw a flock of wild turkeys and a few deer, but this is the only shot that came out as I was bouncing along on Dakota. I highly recommend you take advantage of this fun activity when you're at either of their state park locations. Tell Cindy I said hi and that next time I'll wear socks & tennis shoes or boots!
