    That is why I HATE trail riding. Been there and done that. It is a total bore!!. It was in the Philippines and it was here in the States when I got back. Once I learned to ride I much preferred free riding. Some of the best riding I had was when I took my three kids out riding for their first time and we were out on our own. No trail guides telling us to do this, don’t do that. I treated the horses as if they were my own and we had fun. Yes we galloped for a bit, And we cooled them down. Yes, we waded through a river. We had fun just walking in a group and talking, not in a line, nose to tail. I will remember that day for the rest of my life.
    I learned to ride at a rental stable and was eventually hired there to ride and take of other inexperienced riders AND I did my share of mucking out the stables. Not a bad job if you love horses.

    They are lucky that the horses are even walking along without a trail guide to make them do it. In many cases they’d either just stop or head back to the stables. This is known as being ‘barn sour’.

    I guess you have to learn to walk before you can run.

    Tell the horses to shape up or the next stop is the glue factory.

    At first glance, it looks like Jack and Abby are texting…but this strip first came out in 2004, which I think was before that fad (it is a fad, isn’t it?) hit everywhere – so I think they are actually playing cards(?).

    I’m from the northeast (Maine), where for some reason horseback riding has become primarily a girl’s sport. I tried trail riding once when my wife roped me into it, and it was just as boring as everyone here says.

    In Spain we rode on the beach and into the ocean. Just have to pick the right location.
