Wow, great pictures gbsmfg! I can't get a good picture of anything and that's w no bears around. :)
I have only ever seen a single bear and I have riden in bear country many times. :( How unlucky is that? I got a picture of the one and only little black bear I saw whilst camping in the smokeys (on family property). I was a kid (no digitals) it was morning (horses all tied) and foggy, I saw it and grabbed my camera and ran toward it to take a picture, it stood up, and I and manage snap one before my cousins insisted I come back or else....I think I remember the word "behind" :). I still have the photo somewhere - it is blurry, blurry...but I was still sooo proud of it! My crappy pic taking skills started pretty young. :)
I actually have never thought about bears whilst riding...good thing, it would just make me paranoid.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
