    I must admit, I wish I had a trail system big enough to get lost in. Biggest area here is a hundred acre woodlot. Might have been massive for winnie-the-pooh, but my horse can cross it in 10 minutes at a slow walk, lol.

    My current trail horse can find the trailer no matter what. He has very good radar. We go riding in a 4,000 acre wildlife refuge and when I've ridden for 1/2 the time I want to stay out, I just give him his head and let him find the trailer.

    So I have never really gone on a long trail ride, lack of space, and I find it amazing that you can let the horse find its own way back. Makes sense, but still amazing.

    I think what everyone is trying to tell you is, that horse does not exist. Horses are homeing pigeons. I don't know how they do it, but you can get miles off course in the middle of nowhere, and they still know where that darn trailer is parked.

    It happened to me last summer. We trailered to somewhere we had never been. A few miles into the woods we met up with a seemingly nice rider who took us on a detour and got us all lost. She left us to find out way back and disappeared. (insert bad word here, rhymes with witch). We started off in the direction we thought was correct on a marked trail, but my horse kept looking off to the left and trying to walk into the woods. After almost an hour of fighting him and realizing we were still very lost, I gave him his head, he bulldozed a path through the woods and found the trail home in about 30 minutes.

    Bottom line is, if you ever get lost, don't worry because your horse won't be.

    Don't give up, just tell us what else you want. I think almost every game plan has been covered; cell phone, GPS, let the horse lead the way home, going in one direction to find some sign of civilization, etc. What else would you like to know?
