We had a great time trail riding with well-known Dallas Real Estate expert Candy Evans through The Bridges at Preston Crossings yesterday, which is located just north of Dallas in Gunter, Texas. When you have a community as beautiful and unique as The Bridges - with an equestrian center and golf course - the best way to see it is on horseback and golf cart!  The horses sauntered us through wooded riding trails filled with autumn-colored leaves and alongside the well-groomed 18-hole Fred Couples Signature Golf Course. We strolled by two large fishing lakes and dreamed about how great it would be to raise a family out here. We trailored the horses and took the golf carts up to the clubhouse for a light lunch and shopping at the golf pro shop.  It was an afternoon escape from the busy Dall...
