I did that twice. I rode with someone from this forum. She wa great company. But she is also very busy as she just opened a new barn. And then there was another girl... but... I wont do that again. I assumed she had more sense than she did. She couldnt bridle my horse and he almost ran out of the barn (not fenced! EEKK)

I found some pages with local people and events via facebook too, if you use that social networking sites. For a long time I was the only one hacking at my farm but some new people moved there in april so now we try do thing together. I made quite a few friends via online initial contact.

I think you have a really great forum here :)

It's actually like that here in Wales too. I mean, half of it's rural! But would you believe, all the trails are now closed off!? It's because some of them went through farmers fields, and although it was fine for horses, the motorbikers ruined it for them, but tearing up good fields! There's a petition to get them open again, and for any bikes on the canal (These are pretty much how to get onto certain trails, as long as you ride carefully along it on horseback) but motorbikes... If police catch them on the canal, they have the right to take the bikes and have them crushed.

But yeah, I wish we had trails like you guys over there! We have to travel in a horse box just to get to some of the really good ones here :/

I'm with you, crimsonsky. Trails galore but no arena and barely any flat ground to school on. Makes it hard when you show!

I feel bad, I have tons of trails where I live, but I don't even like trail riding.
I do like to hack around in a field though!

We also have in our state a cross state ride that takes ten consecutive days which covers 250 miles of inner state beauty even hikers do not see. These trails and camps are financially covered and maintained by an organized group as well. The wildlife that you see on horseback is unreal.
