Geocache Description:

A cache for those who love horses...


Humans began to domesticate horses around 4500 BC. Around the world, horses play a role within human cultures. Horses are used for leisure activities, sports, and working purposes.

Equestrian sports have the dual purpose of providing entertainment for crowds and creating and preserving excellent horsemanship. There are certain jobs that horses do very well, and no technology has yet developed that can fully replace them. For example, mounted police patrols, cattle round-ups, and search and rescue. Modern horses are often used to reenact many of their historical work purposes. Horses are used in various live action historical reenactments of specific periods of history. Horses also are used to preserve cultural traditions and for ceremonial purposes.

People of all ages with physical and mental disabilities obtain beneficial results from association with horses. Therapeutic riding is used to mentally and physically stimulate disabled persons and help them improve their lives through improved balance and coordination, increased self-confidence and a greater feeling of freedom and independence. Horses also provide psychological benefits to people whether they actually ride or not. "Equine-assisted" or "equine-facilitated" psychotherapy is a form of experiential psychotherapy that uses horses as companion animals to assist people with psychological problems, including anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, mood disorders, behavioral difficulties, mental illness and those who are going through major life changes.

The cache you are looking for is a regular sized lock n' lock.

If you can reach this cache with your hands, it's not where it should be. The placement should require at least one very long TOTT to retrieve. It should not be retrievable with a child standing on your shoulders, and should not be placed in a way that's visible as you approach the cache. Please place it back as high as you can to match this description, thanks!

Note: Parking is free at most times, however for 2 weeks in June, there may be a fee. You should still be able to access the cache without having to pay out of pocket.

Logging Etiquette: Geocache hiders sometimes go through a great deal of planning to place their caches. As a result, they'd like to hear your feedback on whether you liked or disliked any aspect of the hide, or if you feel that some cache maintenance is required. Single word, acronym, or emoticon logs may be easier when you have a lot of caches to log, but it doesn't tell the hider or other finders anything about your adventure (or lack thereof) in finding the cache. Please keep this in mind when entering your log.
