Riding across the country...

I've had this dream for a long time: ride across the country on horse back. I think it would be so sick. I want to start in Maine and hit as many states as possible on the way to California. Who else would dream of doing this?

I've always wanted to do that to. I want to stay at random farm houses along the way so I can meet lots of new people.

Help me horse forum! You're my only hope!

I never even thought of that! That's a good idea. I want to get a bunch of people to join in as we get to their state.

There was a guy who rode from Oregon to DC and kept a blog about it.

See Uncovering America by Horseback.

The Journeys | Uncovering America by Horseback

The original trip was a year or two ago, but you can still find details of it on the website. Pretty interesting stuff and there are (or were) lots of videos of people he met along the way.

I've never been to the USA but I have thought about riding across it. A lot of people I know have expressed a desire to drive across, but I thought it would be much more fun on horseback. I might do that oneday. It would be cool if you could see the 48 states but it would take a long time.

I've thought of that too. It would definitely be an adventure!

It would be a dream come true if hubby and I could do something like that. I don't know about staying at someone's house, but maybe their barn? We love to camp, and want to do that with the horses. We were working toward that several years ago, but then he had his stroke and it pretty much put an end to all of those dreams becoming a reality. :(
