Rent a horse and hit the trails for an hour, a day or overnight to spring into the saddle of a horse and trot off into the wilderness? Or maybe just take your city-bred little one out to ride on a real live pony? These desires can be satisfied at several places around the Issaquah area. At Happy Trails, 10719 142nd Place S.E., you can rent a horse for a day or an overnight trip along miles of trails on Cougar, Squak and Tiger Mountains. Riders are guided until they have learned the trails. Reverva- Lions are required; they operate year-round. One of the most popular rides is the breakfast ride on Sunday mornings. These trips are booked three or four weeks in advance, and you get five hours of riding plus an out- door breakfast. Happy Trails also has a pony program for younger children. Their stagecoach and covered wagon are Salmon Days parade. They pride themselves on custom horseback riding -- pro- viding customers with what they want. Kelly's Riding and Board- ing Ranch, located at 7212 Renton-lssaquah Road S.E., operates year-round, by reservation only. They give riding lessons, and a guide goes with riders the first time out. They offer a two- and-a-half hour trip to the top of Cougar Mountain. The Aquabarn - Ranch, located at 15227 Maple Valley Highway, will take people over eight years old on their trail rides.. They have pony rides available for younger children. They operate year-round, by reservation only. The High Lonesome Ranch, located at 233 244th Ave. N.E., Redmond, has a nine year age limit, with no younger children. They offer day trips, and riders must be ac- companied by a guide on the first trip. Make reserva- tions at least a day in ad- vance. The ranch is open year-round. The trails roam throughout the Pine Lake Plateau area. High Country Packers is a company started by a local dentist, Robert Folkman. He provides day and overnight rides, supplies all materials except a sleeping bag, and takes people out to the Cle Elum area in the Cascade Mountains. Meals are cook- ed in a Dutch oven. The packers do not operate in the winter, when snow makes the mountains impassable. He also guides a popular elk hunting ex- pedition. Reservations are requested, especially if you are planning on a certain weekend. --by Debbie L.
