A bunch of people from my work are talking about going on a trail ride during the last week in January. The way I initially understood it was that it was a weekend-long ride, but now I think it might be the whole week.
How do these things work? From what I hear, it sounds like an excuse for a bunch of rednecks to get together and show off their horses and motorhomes while drinking beer.
I don't understand it - if it's a week long (or even a weekend), how are you riding your horse, yet sleeping in a motorhome? Is someone driving the motorhome as you're riding your horse, or do you return to the same spot each night? What do you do with the horses at night? Tie them up? Or are there pens to put them in? Does someone have to stay up and watch them?
This is taking place in Texas, by the way. Apparently that makes a huge difference. I'm from Maryland, and up there, going on a trail ride means that you're going to rent a horse for an hour or so and follow the butt in front of you. That sounds nothing like what a "Texas trail ride" is.
