    I've ridden up to church and into town. My friend's dad owns some land next to the high school so we rode to school as well.

    My sister and I rode our ponies about 15 ks along the stock route to the next town :)

    My boys had to haul to Hospice. We had just finished a ride and got the word that hubby's mom had taken a turn for the worst. I hauled to the hospice and hubby put on a clean shirt and hat and dropped him off. Hauled boys back to the barn and then joined hubby. My boys have been around.

    I have road my horse on a glacier because we live about two miles from one in Alaska. Also I have had my horse live in the basement of my house for three months because she was sick and it was too cold in the middle of winter in Alaska for her to be outside. My little profile picture is actually my horse bowing infront of the glacier.

    Since in this thread people are riding around town and some youngins might want to try...

    Just wanted to remind or put out there to anyone,especially beginners- that you never tie a horse up by its reins/headstall. If you are riding and may want to stop for a bit- bring a halter/lead or leave it under the headstall.

    I witnessed two girls ride up to the local gas station and tied their horses up by the reins to the light pole. One horse spooked and broke his bridle and trotted straight into traffic but luckily nobody was hurt.

    Even with a seasoned/dead broke ol hag you never know when a horse may spook and kill themselves or a passer by.

    I always ride with a halter and lead rope in tow, if not on the horse (over the bridle, so it doesn't interfere with the bridle in any way.) I agree...never tie with the reins; otherwise have someone hold the horse, and take turns going inside.

    I don't do much riding out into town anymore but I do ride on the dirt roads mostly. I used to ride with my friend down to the local swimming holes and tie the horses up so we could go for a dip.

    Yes I prefer the "here hold my horse method"

    I don't hand my horse to a stranger...If I'm with other riders, I will apply the "let's go in separately, and hold each other's horses" method ;)
