I need to vent, I am angry and appalled, and just really can't believe what happened, I came around the trail at a moderate gait, boout 6mph, saw some kids dragging what appeared to be large branches around. I am thinking I hope they don't wave them at Mr spook monster,, any way as I get closer I see the little snots are booby trapping the trail, they are running about a 1 inch thick grape vine across the trail. They jerk it up in front of me about 1 to 2 foot off the ground as I stop and start yelling at them. There is an adult woman (mom maybe) standing right there watching them. And these are little kids, say 6 ish ?... I can't believe it, she is laughing, telling them come on that's not nice,,,,,,I tell her , :Not NICE ? You're the adult you stupid b@#$ch. I get a bit farther down the trail and call 911 and report them, park ranger went looking but hadnt found them..... seriously I just can't believe an adult would just stand there and think that was something ok to do.

Shoulda pistol-whipped that huzzy and rode yer horse over the top of her while she was down. I always wonder what it would feel like to ride on a human carcass. Probably like riding on wet sand

Oh and shake out a loop and lace one on those kids, take a wrap and go off at a high lope, maybe bounce em off a couple young trees just enough to rattle their cage :)

Thanks so much for posting this - I hope me daughter and I will never have to need it! When I was 13 I was riding alone on the trail and a man approached from the front. My horse watched him, and when the man was abot 15 feet away, my horse pinned his ears and Charged!!! Boy did that guy run!!!!!LOL. My horse never did it before or after and I always wondered...

That's amazing! I would expect a dog to do that but not a horse. Very cool, good for your horse.

She wasn't thinking, that's the problem.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Obviously intelligence and age don't always go together. Even a grown up idiot is an idiot. AND....they breed.

I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!

What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
