Wow I never even thought about being attacked on the trail!
Rena would kick his butt xD
He didnt really think about if you had a knife (which maybe its only me that carries onee of those on the trail, lol) going for my knife would be my first reaction xD But I guess the only think you could really do is jab at his hand.... lol
I had one time I was riding double with my son and ha a gut feeling a man approaching us had less than the best intentions. Deciding not to risk it I wrapped one arm tightly around my son, the other on the saddle horn, pointed Poco straight thru the gap around the man and let him go. The guy never woulda stood a chance we were GONE. Lol. Posted via Mobile Device
Really cool video, I've never been threated on the trail but I had a soccer mom call the cops on my friend and I because we were riding to close to her kids on are riding path. Well the horse I was riding has horrid issue's with people coming up to her on the trail, She sweats and freaks out. Lets just say it was an interesting situation when we were surrounded by cop cars at night and the officers came down the bank to us at night my horse was not having any of it. Haha let just say I told them to let my horse know they were there or my horse was going to freak. Sorry random story.
I've had a deer hunter come up to me with a gun (out of season mind you) and start threatening us about calling the cops and how he first thought the horses were deer, blah blah blah. That's probably the most dangerous time to be riding is during hunting season. Those deer hunters usually are a little drunk to start out with and carrying weapons and then you go and tick them off by riding past their hunting grounds....but I carry a knife on the trail and try to stay off private property unless I've been given permission. Luckily I live in such a small town though most of the people are nice and just stop and talk to us.
I never ride alone unless its right on the property I ride on. And if a man approached my horse in a threatening manner we would be so gone. He was abused by men so I wouldn't have to ask him twice to get the heck outta dodge! Now my friend's horse Rascal loves people so that wouldn't work as well.
