    Y'all need to come riding with me sometimes. You will see that the alligators haven't ate any of us and the spiders are a training opportunity - LOL you have to know how to side pass pretty dang good at times to play spider polo!!!

    Gaaaaaaa....my cousin and I were riding yesterday and thought the spiders were all gone for the year. We saw a huge one at saddle level in a big web but it was off to the side so I left the old girl alone. Normally I give them a job...I take down their web!!
    She sidepasses well...but I think I would just have to pass on alligators all together!

    I am an eco-friendly rider, if I saw a huge web w a huge spider, I would just run.

    Only a fellow trail rider would appreciate this...a trail riding buddy found a natural "arena" type formation...big bowl formed by hills in the mountains, w fine dirt in the "bottom" of the bowl...nothing else, no rocks, cactus, nada. If headed that way, we stop there and "train" for a few...sidepassing duels and all. The things that can amuse a trail rider!

    I just want to know: Were any of these spiders hired to film "The Hobbit"?

    Qos missed her opportunity, she could have made big $$ stuffing them in small animal crates, passed them off as friendly little camera ready buggers - and sold them to the film production. But, noooo, she just whacked 'em dead!

    I'm a "just trail rider" when I ride. My daughter (10) is the actual rider in the family, her Dad and I are her chauffeurs and ground crew 90% of the time. She and her horse are primarily English flat riders (might start jumping this year), they show both Western and English, sort cows (and ducks), play day (barrels, poles, etc), and love to go out on the trail. Sometimes I grab one of the BO's horses and join her for a trail ride.

    Let me tell you, she is the most sore after a couple of hours trail riding. :). It really challenges her and her horse because you DO have to work harder and longer with more obstacles than you find in the sand arena. We love it as a change of pace for her QH. I'm hoping in time to move away from arena showing and look into trail challenges as our next big "event".

    LOL the one I saw yesterday could have raked in big cash if they were paying for big spiders. She wasn't Indiana Jones big but she was a good sized old girl.

    Dang...y'all are bound to see all kinds of critters on y'alls rides that make Tyrrell Park seem tame. There have been threads where everyone talks about seeing wolfs, deer, elk, moose, mountain lions and exotics and bears. Come on, a few alligators, spiders and hogs don't compare to that!!

    But wolves, bears & mountain lions are warm & fuzzy, and usually take off when they see you, before you can even get the camera out. Alligators got scales, and lurk in the muddy water.

    Got no problem with spiders, though.

    I don't have a problem with spiders, it's their webs I hate!!!

    I understand .. just because I don't compete people seem to think you aren't that * into horse riding, or you don't ride as much, or are less of a rider. Which is wrong as I ride 3-4 times a week and im very much involved in my Sport !

    James I am more afraid of the mountain lions than alligators. They ate a dang stallion about 50 miles from here last year. He belonged to an acquaintance - he was her baby. He was in a 40 foot pen and two attacked him and he couldn't get away. Dang...now THAT is scary....alligator not so much. Spider webs are yukky - but not near as yukky as reaching up to pull them off your helmet and finding a spider dangling from your hand
