OMG Flygap - that is one scary story!!! I think that is every riders nightmare that they would be attacked by wild/crazy animals or a crazy person.

Hi, yeah! And I was only 16.
Now at 31 I don't leave the house without my shotgun and dogs!
We don't have grizzlies but we have 600 Lb. black bears, dumped
strays, and mountain lions (reported but not supported by USFS)!
Our horses are trained and training to be shot off of and we
NEVER ride without a pistol.

I'm so surprised that the wrangler wasn't packing!??? With that much
danger and responsiblilty? What if it was a mad mamma moose?
They are the deadliest animals in North America, I've been chased TWICE by moose and barely lived to tell about it. A mad mamma would rip you off a
horse in a second!
And she was the only one on the ride? Normally there is always
two or more on a trip... the article didn't say.

Safe riding people!!!

I have heard that moose are pretty darn cranky. I think I am glad we don't have moose in Texas!!

Wow what a story! I have never seen any wild animals on the trails around here I am sure they are around but luckly I have never seen anything except turkeys, squirrels and birds.


Horses lend us the wings we lack.
