Good article for trail beginners/wannabes like me


Ran across this today. My horse knows how to do a lot of these things, but it will be fun to work on them knowing they will come in handy on a trail ride some day. I am especially keen to practice leading over obstacles at home. I ride English, so that's not something we normally do.

Looks like a great article...certainly something for us all to think about! I don't have time to read the whole thing at the moment, but I look forward to coming back and reading later!

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

Good info -thanks

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
