Cypress Trails is located near George Bush Intercontinental Airport, but it's hard to remember this place is anywhere near the city when you're out on a horse taking in the natural beauty. The instructors are patient and helpful with beginners, and they also approve experienced horsewomen and horsemen to take part in trail and endurance rides. No matter their skill set, riders get to enjoy the natural beauty of the winding forested trails alongside Cypress Creek from the back of a horse, watching egrets, herons and other birds winging along banks that in the spring are lined with wildflowers. Rabbits will sometimes appear on the trail, along with the occasional snake. Luckily, the horses are so well-trained and so familiar with the path that even snakes don't spook them. Giddyup.
