I’ve finally settled in to my current equestrian identity: Trail Rider. Aboard my trusty steed Wally, I’ve explored all sorts of trails—from urban bridle paths to abject wilderness—with a sense of zeal and wonderment.
I’ve combined moments from those misadventures with my own brand of horse humor to create the following list. Whether you’re trail riding in town or through open country, these are statements and observations you really don’t want to hear from your companion.
I hope I made you laugh, and also think wisely about your trail riding partners. If you’d like to leave a comment or share a brief story about a trail ride gone wrong, I’d love to read them.
