. Pretty easy to pick out landmarks that way. Plus, we don't have a ton of wide open spaces here. Even if you do get completely lost where you are, you ride far enough in one direction, you'll find a fence and can follow it to civilization...or the gate you went through to enter the pasture you're in.
