So all my life I have wanted to ride my horse across the country, camping out under the stars. It sounds like soooo much fun and I really want to go horse packing. How do I get started doing something like that? Obviously my first few times I should go on an experienced horse with experienced people. But I would really like to take my own horse eventually (talk about great bonding time!). So yeah basically I know nothing about horse packing but it is something I really want to do!
Also, I found a college called NOLS that gives you college credits for doing adventurous things like backpacking and climbing. One of the courses they offered was a 3 week horse pack trip across Wyoming - for college credits! I was so excited until I found out it would cost over 5,000 dollars. We all know horse people don't have that kind of money lying around.
