Well, I don't have near as pretty scenery as you all. It is what it looks like - rocky. I rarely take photos on the trail (not that there are real "trails"), I can't actually see the lcd from glare on my cell when I "shoot", anyway.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

If I didn't trail ride I think my social life would be really nonexistent!

Personally, give me the moose and elk, bears, cougars and wolves any day over giant spiders! We spend a lot of time out in places only you can get to via foot or horse in the company of good friends of course. We ride some wild valley land and have so much fun and I wouldn't own a horse I could not trail ride on. I have sold a few because they were not ranch and trail horse material. The one mare could of been an amazing wp horse had I kept her and done more training on her. But my gosh, moving cows was impossible. Trail riding I was so far behind everyone they could of left me for days before I made it back.

It makes my horses better horses. We have some rough land out here in Sk, contrary to everyones opinion! And we need horses that can cover it. My show horses better be able to suck it up, get thrown into different tack and be able to keep up! Otherwise I really do not need a show horse like that. I find they are more sure footed can handle ground where every other horse is slipping and be no nonsense in whatever weather. Meanwhile the other show horses are having difficulty as they are melting inthe rain. My barrel horses are some of the most sure footed ones you will find. They will go as fast as they are comfortable and will not go any faster in bad ground. They go to their limit and then have common sense to keep their feet under them. That I know is from being up and down those hills in sometimes iffy situations.

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.

I rode in AZ for the first time a couple of months ago..... and you are correct, I have never seen so much rock before and your cactus actually shoot stickers when you ride by

But even given that , its beautiful country and your sunsets are to die for !

Dang Pattilou, that sounds scarier than spiders. LOL there was quiet a bit of cactus in central Texas when we rode at McKinney Roughs. OMG I didn't want to tangle with any of that!!!

FYI cactus first aid ... Tide. It is a life saver! My mare once got a barrel cactus barb in her hind pastern. A big one, luckily not w a hook. It was locked in tight! I soaked it in warm water w tide when we got home, and it came right out (w needle nose plyers). And, it really does get the dirt out, because the hair that was soaked was blinding white!
