Shoot..I wish our trails were that nice! I just navigate between 2 sides of a valley, lol. And im glad my horse thinks and didnt go down the hill I wanted her to go down today..I think we wouldve ended up broken at the bottom of the valley D:

But..I say my mare's JUST a trail horse as well..all the time. Im not apologizing for it though. I say it because that's just what she does best. Sure she's in training to show trail, pleasure, and games..but she's still just a trail horse for now; a good, surefooted, trustworthy one.

I use just because trails are the only thing we actually DO at the moment. When I can show her without it just being for experience, then Ill say she's a show horse that is awesome at trails as well.

Montcowboy, I just took a look at some of your albums. Man, you've got it made. One day soon, I'm going to be up that way and ride some of that country.

This has been the most enjoyable thread I've read in a looooong time. I've read every single post and looked at every picture. It's got me all bothered to get back out there now and put some miles on Penny!

QOS, come on up!! You know where we are!
The trails vary, the main ones are pretty smooth, when you get off the beaten path... Well, they gotta suck it up. I keep mine barefoot and trimmed appropriately, never had a problem with these horses. Did have a tender footed gelding, when he threw a shoe you were walking home!

The ATV's are only bad a few months out of the year, it's like a swarm, they just show up. Thankfully it's only on the weekends!!

I'll give you the grand tour!

This is one of the loops I ride. Filmed by a neighboring farm. He's on a mtn. bike so the view would be similar.

and just down the road

This is Foster's falls. Named after my husbands family.

I've always wanted to ride the Bob and do a little fishing up in that country, May have to come visit you Montana.

But it is so hard to trailer so far when there is so much closer that I still need to see.

There is always something just over the next mountain that needs exploring

And it always looks different as the season change

So enjoying everyone's back yards, boy we have some beautiful country in this United States of America !!

I don't know how it is in other states but here in CA our "Just trail riding" miles are slowly dwindling. So many developments, our state park systems are short on funds and some are closing

It seems to be a constant battle to keep our trail systems open.

thought i should be totally upfront on this. a picture of what happens when you spend enough time jumping rocks cliffs and mountain tops. lost the entire fall off of him to heal him up. i was about 15 miles from trailer.all rough rough country. and he wouldnt stop pumping out the blood . when i droped out of grizzly basin the wolfs were howling up a storm at us cause of all the blood along the so called trail i was on. finally got to a glacier fed river and stood him in the cold cold water till it slowed way down..then made it out..thank goodness i had some bute along . by the time we got out he wasnt doing really good. but.. as ive said before.thats just trail riding right??? ride safe everyone. the second picture is part of the motley crew waiting for me to get done messing with the leg.
