MEDORA, N.D. (AP) - Horseback rides have begun at Theodore Roosevelt National Park in western North Dakota.

Park Service officials say visitors can go on the popular rides starting this weekend.

Riders must be at least 7 years old, 54 inches tall and weigh no more than 240 pounds. Lessons are given before each ride.

Shadow Country Outfitters is the park’s only concessioner. The company runs the horseback riding operation from the historic Peachful Valley Ranch.

Basic rides are 1½ hours long. Riders travel along one of several trails within the park.

A schedule of the trail rides can be found online at www.ctctel.com/peacefulvalley .
