Southern, my question was intended to get more information, not take the OP to task. There are good reasons someone has to ride on the edge of the road.
Yes, horses are supposed to have the right of way, but many, many non-horse people don't know that and there's very little ability to enforce it unless a police car happens to be behind someone harassing you.
If you HAVE to ride on the roadways do it as far onto the shoulders as you can get, and even get off the roads if you have the option.
Throwing rocks at passing cars is a bad idea, and can result in injury or even death for you, your horse, and the vehicle driver.
I understand that it's frustrating, but vehicles and prey animals do not mix well. Do everything you can to be courteous, and stay out of the roadway and as far onto the shoulders as you can.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
