I'm new around here. We don't have a horse yet, but my wife and I are learning about them. We're mountain hikers, and our legs are starting to give out on us. My wife has been wanting a horse all of her life, and we're taking it slow. We want to learn all we can before jumping in.
We will probably take a pack trip this summer into the Cascades. We have made friends with a lot of good wranglers, and they seem to be a happy bunch.
