Thanks that reminds me of my first of out of state trail ride. I had my horse for not even a month, back rhen. Some friends from works called and asked if I wanted to. Sure, why not? I had been of this horse half a drozen times or less. This was my second trail ride ever. It starts out fine, infact I was a little crocky. Then we came to a little dry creek, I set I high in the saddle, and went right over his shoulder. Some where in this, my knee was hit. I think my horse hit it when he got up. For a good porsion of the ride I walked, every time thought about getting back in the saddle I saw myself rounding down the hillside. To make matters, one of the group brought their preteen or teenage tag along, who rode back to remind me You need to learn to ride. If it had been on my ATV (what we had used to chase cattle) I would have lean back and It would have happen. But, I knew how to ride. Yes , my ego was not bruised, it was betten black and blue. . .[/b]
A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
