Self defense on the trail
A very helpful video posted on another forum that I think everyone should watch, especially younger riders.

Very cool video!! I'm really glad you posted it...I have never really thought about what I would do if someone threatend me on a trail and I ride by myself all the time.

Some great ideas there. I have never been threatened on a trail, but in today's world, it's a good idea to keep in mind the possibility. Thanks for posting!

wow neat video! i have been threatened on a trail before but not to be attacked, we were crossing some land and (it was not this guys land and we DID have permission to be there) it was me, my sister, her friend, and I. we were riding through and then when we came back through he had parked his huge tractor on the trail so we couldn't get back out, we had to cross through some huge thorns and briars, and he came up to us cursing, in front of the 2 kids (10 yr old, and 8 yr old) threatening us and telling us he would shoot at us and stuff if he caught us back there again, and that he would call the cops (even though it wasn't his land) ahhh the people these days...

but if someone tried to attack me like in the ^^ above video... i would be freaked and i have no idea what my horse would do lol just cluck and squeeze and hope my training was enough to send her off and away in a lope!

I believe he's local - Scott Hansen. About Scot Hansen He gives demonstrations in person at the Expos every year. Also I've heard about his clinics, but never had a chance to attend one. He's a fun guy.

This is great info to have. I ride out and about by myself frequently, and I've never considered the thought anyone would attack while I was mounted!

That was a good "heads up" reminder that there is danger on the trails and it isn't always from your horse. Thanks.
