FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Horseback riders have another 18-mile route to explore in the mountains of eastern Kentucky thanks to the completion of the Dawkins Line Rail Trail in Johnson and Magoffin counties.

That's only the latest horse-related offering in Kentucky, the state that bills itself as the horse capitol of the world.

Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear said the state's park system offers a range of horse-friendly trails and campgrounds. And, for people who don't have their own horse, Carter Caves, Cumberland Falls, Kentucky Dam Village, Barren River and Lake Cumberland state parks have stables where they can pay to go horseback riding.

They can even camp with their horses at Carter Caves, Taylorsville Lake, Dale Hollow Lake, Pennyrile Forest and Greenbo Lake state parks.
