Almost always I ride alone or with 3 or 4 others every now and then I'll go on a big trail ride it's always great watching people bring horses that's never been rode then trying to break them on the ride always entertaining I would love to go on this ride no telling how many buck offs you would get to watch

^^That's one reason why I don't go to trail rides with folks I don't know. I've seen way too many times of someone having a horse start bucking, buck them off, and then proceed to buck into the side of a truck/trailer or into a group of people/horses who aren't mounted yet....or buck into a horse that's tied .

I had one that bucked into my horse after I was mounted but when I was still standing around waiting for everyone else. Thankfully my horse was bigger and stronger and didn't get hurt. If he'd gotten crippled by that idiot's horse, there would have been hell to pay.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
