These are reasons I don't ride my own horse on the road... but any way one day we were riding my friends horse double for a quick walk down the road and as we were walking a group of high school guys were in a yard, having a party since it was about 8 at night, middle of summer so it wasn't dark, and started to follow us, they made it look not so noticeable, but it was!! Then they all ran at us, we took off down the side of the road but after a few seconds they stoped, no biggie so we kept on going with our ride then a a while later we were about a 3-4 min canter or so away from her house and here they come again, but pilled in the back of a pick-up truck, we stood our ground, then turned around and started to walk home, when they started to rev the truck, which didn't fase her horse at all, then they were say 500 feet away from us when they basically put the peddle to metal, thank god the truck spun for a while becuase it gave us enough time to get a head start home, thank goodness her horse is a barrel racer and knows how to move! As we were almost to her house one of them reached out to try to grab me in which I almost fell of trying stop him, her horse was great this whole time, then I realized turning into her culvasic was gonna be a problem at this speed, we cut through a neighbors yard, which later we went up to apoliize for any hoof prints and explained what happened, so then we made it to her drive way and they left us alone. Her mom called the cops but they couldnt find them again, then it took about an hour to walk her horse out, but thank heavens for him, I dont want to think what would have happened of we were riding bikes, or walking like we planned on.

I was out riding with some girlfriends a few years ago and we had a car full of teenagers come up behind us and honk. My horse bucked, but I held on. The other horses were fine, thank goodness. I thought for sure my idiot horse was going to run out in the road and get us both killed, but it wasn't that bad.

Other than that, we've just had the usual jerks flying by at 55 miles an hour and not even giving us a wide berth. That's why I don't ride along the road anymore. People are d*ckwads.

The scariest one was when I was about 12 or so. My friend and I were cantering down a dirt road where there are almost never cars. We were not expecting a car to come flying around the corner, but it did. We both BARELY made it out of the road. If we had been just an inch closer from the center line, we wouldn't have had time to get out of the way and we would have been crushed. It was terrifying!

Then a few months ago I was riding Sun down the road in front of the barn. It's pretty quiet and people are usually very polite. Then, I hear a loud truck coming up behind us. Sunny grew up by a very busy highway so passing vehicles don't bother her, but I had no clue what she would do if a truck did something stupid beside us. The truck stops by us and it's full of rednecks, unsurprisingly. He starts to rev the engine and says, "Hey, wanna race?" I say, "No thank you." He says, "Come on!" and that's when I snap. I yelled, "If you scare my horse, I swear to God I will hop of my horse and beat the crap out of you."
The guy looked shocked and said, "Oh, sorry, didn't mean to scare your horse," and drove off.
WIN!

Thanks shoebox.. I wasn't riding her though. It was a bad night and the fence didn't get locked right and her and one other horse got out. She ended up being the one that got hit and she died about 2 minutes after I got there im just glad I got to see her one last time :( That was one of the worst nights ever. That happened just over two years ago though. Sure do miss her, she was a great horse and put up with so much :) I know it wasn't while riding but that was the worst car/ horse experience for me!
