1.6 million acres is nothing to sneeze at. I am confined to 500 acres of woodsy riding. I don't know how to do the real trail riding; with high lining and hobbling and packing and all. Would love to learn, though.
Me too Tiny! Mine aren't broke to hobbles, something I'm learning about... We live where we ride so no need, but when we used to go camping that would have been nice! One time we stopped to swim and let the horses graze. They hightailed it back to the cabin, that was a walk of shame! (land was fenced, LOL!)
Missy you are brave, no gully jumpin for me! LOL!
So you like waterfalls? Here are a few more!
And rocks? Yeah, we gots lots of those! BIG ONES!! I hate this valley, it's a death trap, but the rocks are awesome! This will be our house if need be! LOL!
I keep getting booted when I try to upload pictures. Not sure what is going on..lol.. few more from my hunting country in the bob marshal wilderness around 2 million acres of more. Plenty of elbow room. The forest fires made some of the pictures smokey..sorry bout that. Hope you enjoy.notice hobbles in the first one..never leave home with out them..lol..enjoy . The last two pictures are just across from my house on the river. Riding old gated off logging roads. They work great for young horses..and as you see.some times the view is good to..ride safe everyone
I haven't read every single post. Stopped on page 4 lol.
I say "just" anything really. I "just" do dressage. I "just" jump. I "just" do what I enjoy. I personally never mean it in a way that's supposed to be offensive.
As for not being able to see show horses doing trails...I would totally do that with mine even if I had a ridiculously amazing GP horse. Any good horse should be able to handle trails...and not the 'pay-for-an-hour-of-walking' kind.
Saying a show horse can't do trails could be turned around to bite you in the butt...don't see trail horses doing third level or jumping five footers (not my view at all, just throwing it out there as an example).
I'd love to go on a real trail ride around here...but I don't ride my own horse yet (he's a state away anyways) and anything around here involving a canter or more is like...$80-150 per person per 45 minutes...bleh.
