Gah. And horsedreamer21 - usually you have to check parks individually.

What type of roads are you looking at? Residential, city or highway? If within the city limits I would try the PD.

From what I understand you ride on the shoulder or the grass, not on he road itself. I presonally wouldnt ride in the road and I live in the sticks in Oklahoma.

Well, I do know that the back-roads are pretty horse friendly as I see a lot of people riding along them where my "kids" are kept. I was just wondering though, in case I felt like doing some mini traveling. Which I'm itching to do, just can't atm.

Call your local police department or the Oklahoma Dept of Transportation. I ride on the roads but I live out of city limits. I have ridden in town a couple of times, even had some cops wave to me so I don't think it is too big a deal. Highways might be different though, call ODT.

Really though, guys... my questions were answered perfectly by the first person who replied. But thanks.

Since you already have your answer, I will just post this for others who may want to click a link rather than spend hours on the phone with government bureaucrats who often don't know the answer themselves. :)

University of Vermont has a web page "Riding on Public Roads." It lists rules/laws from several different states. Some may find this useful.

Riding on Public Roads

Keep in mind, however, that being "right" will not help you if that SUV or delivery truck hasn't also read the rules stating you have right of way. Your horse may dent the truck, but the truck will still win the encounter. Always apply a good helping of common sense to the rules.
