There is a bar in Fort Worth that routinely has horses tied up to a light pole outside while the owners are inside "tying one on". This is off Main Street, a VERY busy road. Blows my mind every time I see it.

i live in a small town of about 3000. people, when i was leasing my friends horse we rode down the main street, through the bottle shop and over the bridge.Because most people drive slow down the main street and we knew the horses were safe enough.
my friend rode her horse across the ferry, before they built the bridge.

I don't thibk it matters where You ride as long as You feel comfortable about it. You kind of know your own horse and will quickly find out if "city" riding works or not.

Where I live at I would have to ride thru the city to get to the pastures and what not.
