They told me that all the roads in 'suburbia' were state maintained, secondary roads (public, not private roads) and there was absolutely no reason to worry about our horses pooping in the road...so we don't (perhaps our subconcious statement about urban sprawl). I would, however, ask for a box or something and clean up if they went right in front of the grocery store, but for some reason they've never pooped there... perhaps because the managers are very nice and sometimes bring apples out to them
We don't poop scoop either, but I have had land owners complain about it occasionally. As a horse person it seems so silly to me, horse poo is nothing like dog poop, but if the land owner ain't happen, ain't NOBODY happy...
I think it would be a hoot to go to the grocery store on horseback.

Kevin the picture was from the Highline Trail in the Uintas. I ride occassionally up Blacksmiths Fork near you. I spend a lot of time on Antelope Island in the winter months, It's just 20 minutes from the house. So we usually buy a season pass and go out most weekends. The snow doesn't get very deep out there.

We've gone through the McDonald's drive thru, too...now that's a hoot.

^ Yup, we have ridden to the mall, to the public lake/playground, through maccas drivethrough, the local shops, local sports fields... Good fun and SO good at de-spooking horses.

We crossed an interstate once, that was excititng, maybe a little too exciting, not to mention illegal. That same ride took us through a culvert under the highway--we had to get off and lead of course.
There's a general store on one of our routes but it's still very rural and no one seems surprised to see us.
Drive-thrus, I love it.

^ We regularly ride through underpasses, and I have been on Wildey on a traffic island and had a bus drive right in front of his nose... I love a horse who isn't scared of traffic!
