I don't have any tips but do you want to swing by texas and pick me up. I would love to go with you. LOL. I'll even bring a pack horse or 2.

I just told my parents I want to do this! I bought a Prius to go cross country..but I put it on hold to save for a horse. Now when I get the horse I know I wont leave it for 3-4 months to see the country. So, i'll have to take him with me!

Hey there. We are new to Horse Forum, but thought we would revive this conversation and share a bit. My husband and I are currently riding our horses across America to benefit Hearts Up Ranch. We are now in Milford, Utah (Aug 2010) and heading East. We'd love to hear from our horsey comrades. Encouragement helps us keep going! Those of you who have a similar dream might also benefit from reading our blogs. We have some pretty funny stories sometimes! The website is HeartsUpRanch.com Hope to hear from you there!

I had this urge to just ride to the hills but I was a mother of two boys in grade school with no horse...But I tell you I still have the urge to go for a cause....Great goal keep with it and find a younger horse... an older one may not be the right thing to go with...

Hey, I'm in a riding club here in Maine, called TROT...we do a lot of rides that could be possible conditioning...and fun because it's with a group! If you'd like a schedule just PM me...we do generally around 10 miles per ride, the difficulty varies, but it's usually not bad...so a good way to begin conditioning. Every now and then someone will do a long ride (more like 20 miles). As far as general conditioning goes, just get your miles in, do lots of hills(it's actually harder going uphill if you make your horse walk). I would learn some survival skills and plan carefully...definitely do your research!

One of the women I ride with is planning a trip from Maine to Cali...I'm not sure what year she's planning it for...hers may be 2013. One gadget she read about that I'd recommend to you is a tracking device you can wear so that people at home can find where you are at all times....good precaution if for some reason you needed to be rescued! Are you planning this alone, have you thought about taking a pack mule/horse?

There is a woman that is just about finished with her cross country ride that she started earlier this year in Cali.
She is riding an older Arabian gelding by the way. ;) She has a blog and updates every few days or so.
I am planning my own mini runaway with my horse in the future, I'd love to hear you guys' ideas about the logistics of it if you want to share. :P

Gee that sounds like a lot of fun. And would be so much more of a road trip than driving a semi across country- been there done that to many times to count-LOL. You could meet so many awesome people and the best part would be the sight seeing.
Go for it....
