    Before I retired my now 23 yo horse I used to ride our country back roads starting from our house by myself. Any cars we had encountered were mostly all neighbors. Never even gave any thought to maybe being in danger of being attacked. I never ventured out on blazed trails in conservation areas by myself though.

    Thanks for posting it.

    Althought I don't think that something like this will ever happen, it's always good to know, what to do in such situations.

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.
    You said it was out of season so that man was not a hunter he was a poacher you should have called the police/wild life agency and reported him

    Someone else posted that you and your horse should wear blaze orange to make you stand out.

    This video is perfect for me since I'm the only one in the family who owns a horse. Due to the fact that I'm alone on the trails I need to be alert and prepared to protect my horse and I from anyone who's a threat. During hunting season I always dress my horse up in bright orange and I wear a bright orange vest that my mom brought me from work. However, where I live the hunters are responsible and know what they're doing, so most of them are respectful and helpful when needed. I still wear the orange just in case. I'm going to work on the spin with Quinn because we've never done that before. Thank you for posting this video.

    Oh man, I never thought about what I would do if someone came up to me on the trial and tried to do that!! It never even crossed my mind that people would even try that with a person on a horse!

    What do you guys think? I bought a 800,000 volt tazer and pepper spray. Is this enough protection?
