Jacob's Review:
   Riding Horses is fun and if you have a birthday party you can go here!
   The mountain biking is awesome - you can ride your bike in the grass and dirt and go over rocks and sticks and stuff! It's neat when you go through the forest on your bike! But don't go if it is raining cause the ground will be too muddy to ride your bike through!
   You have to be ten to do paintball - but I wouldn't be scared to do it, and it would be fun, too!

Dad's Notes:
   Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area (BLORA). BLORA features many fun activities for the entire family. They have horseback riding, mountain biking, paintball, camping, swimming, boating. Anything you can think of to do with being outdoors and chances are, you can find it at BLORA.

Jacob Tip:   Wear pants when you ride the horses & visit the Horse Cavalry at Ft. Hood if you like horses! Bring a bottle of water or some Gatorade when you go mountain biking because you get thirsty! And the best way to do paintball wars is to lie down and hide!
