Flygap, I hope to take you up on that offer one day.

Montcowboy - glad you got home before the wolves ate you! I am sure your horse was like the guys on Monty Python "it is just a flesh wound!!!" Poor boy - glad he was ok.

Here are pictures from Ebenezer Park at Sam Rayburn Lake in east Texas and the other two are at McKinney Roughs on two separate rides. That is near Austin, Texas. I think my pictures are pretty dang whimpy compared to y'alls....

Glad this ol' boy was across a canal from us

Glad he made it mont. That is awful. My cousin lost a stunning stud on a trail ride once, after that I became a lot less cavalier about things.

This is a great thread, I rarely ever take photos on the trail...but it will "remind" me to at least try. I am interested in one of those head cameras.

I noticed in the pics ^^ lot of people do not wear a helmet. Ya might want to at least give it some thought. My riding buddies don't, so I look "odd man out". Its easier not to wear one, granted, not as much shade as a cowboy hat and all. But....

Oh, and I have to ride alone often, I find it more enjoyable to ride w someone, and my "dare-o-meter" just jumps up when I am with someone for some reason. Not sure why.

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

................... but I have two friends that have permanent brain damage from horse accidents. Helmets could have prevented the damage. But that is another thread.........

Missy May, I started riding with a helmet last year about this time. I never ride without it now. Two of my riding buddies ride with helmets - the others do not.

The helmet cam is a Contour Roam. Takes pretty good video!

We've lost a few horses over the years in the back county. Stuff happens and horses are just an accident waiting to happen. You hope it doesn't happen to you and you hope it's rare for anybody else. But occssionally a horse gets hurt. It's why I carry a pistol, not because I'm worried about bears or cougars, But in case I have to put a horse down.



Ever had to clean the quicksand out of your horses ears and nostrils?

Love the pics posted. Definitely makes me jealous of what beautiful trails I'm missing out there. My former show horse Joey, has become a reliable trail horse who makes my trail rides truly enjoyable. I especially love winter trail rides when we can enjoy all the trees covered in snow and our small waterfall and surrounding rocks blanketed with icicles. The winter snow cover enhances the stillness and gives a whole different quality to our ride. Can't wait for more snow!
