Thank you all for the feedback, this does make me feel so much better. For a minute I thought I might be abusing my horses by riding them so much!!!

Sounds great. I would be concerned riding on a road after dark.
Just a couple months ago someone was riding and did get hit by
A car going like you know what just a 1/2 mile from my place. But where I live there are no street lights, sideworks or pavement. I t didnt go good for the horse. The rider had no lights with him and the horse was black, his buddy was across the road so the car speeding swerved to miss one and got the other one.
For me where I live I would be scared to do it.
Hey You Lucky LOVEBEAR
Just be careful ;]

I couldn't agree with that word of advice more! I was TERRIFIED that first night ride, and consider myself EXTREMELY blessed to not have been in a very bad situation. I insisted the next time we go out prepared, so we went and bought lanterns that we could hang from the breast collars and flashing light thingies that we wore around our necks backwards as well as those little glow bracelet things that we wore around our wrists. They worked PERFECTLY!!! The cars were so confused about what was ahead, they slowed WAY down!!! Now I LOVE night riding.


Yes, I consider myself beyond lucky to be able to enjoy this time in my life. I do still find myself grumbling though when it is BEAUTIFUL outside and I am stuck at work....I just want to be on my horse and no where else!!! I'm sure my poor boy is glad I have to work though!
