    Some pics of walking through a smoke bomb with Laddy :) (He is the bay Arab that has a dressage saddle and white dressage pad on in the pictures and I have a blue shirt.)

When you ride you sign up for 'events' which could be anything from helping with those classes to going for a trail ride. You get a little radio that you can use to report problems if you see any or if people approach you with one. Kind of like a neighborhood watch, but with your horse and on public bridle paths.

    Edited to add: I'm just a plain old boring civilian!
    That seems like it would be really fun to be able to walk around the neighborhood on horse back!! How did your horses like walking with a bunch of people around them?

    He generally doesn't care. He does NOT like being handled by people he doesn't know so as long as they don't touch him or our tack he's fine with them. He really loves dogs but doesn't understand that they are not little horses and tries to play with them! My husband has been coming out with me on the trails sometimes and runs or bikes whole I ride along - horse doesn't mind the bikes either. He's good with ATVs as long as the scary bug head talks and reminds him that it's a person. All in all I think my horse has a good time out there but I think he enjoyed the clinic more - he likes thinking.

    I need to find one of those clinics in my area! I found earlier in the year, but it was too late when I found out about it, to get in. Glad it went well for you!
