I am wary of going out too far alone.....even with my cell phone, but that is my mothers fault-lol-she instilled the fear of EVERYTHING into me, and even now, I am still paranoid. So, I am careful, but I still do it. I take my cell phone and always make sure someone knows which direction I went in. They know that I am never gone more than a couple of hours. And KEEP YOUR PHONE ON YOU-not the horse! I see so many people do that-seriously-who is the horse going to call? And when he shows up back at the barn without you-no GPS either. I will also say that my horses are trail veterans, and IF I go out on the trails-I pay attention to them. If they are acting weird-I go another direction. But you have to know your horse for that for sure. Only once did I have to turn back, and after I did heard gunshots in a public hiking park.........Just know the difference between being pissy and worried.
