Forming a Posse

Ok, I'm only kidding about the posse. But when we arrived at the forest to take a leisurely, springtime walk, that's what I first though of when I saw these four equestrians talking and looking over the map of the regional forest,

The horsewoman was actually alone, and the three men were riding together, we learned when we saw them split off in two directions. Later walking around the big loop back to the forest entrance, we met the male riders again, still enjoying their ride as much as we were enjoying our stroll. It was a beautiful day.

Riders on horseback are frequently seen in this forest as there are several stables as well as farms in the vicinity. Horses are welcome there. All of them are friendly and most of their riders are too. ;-)

You got my attention with the posse bit! lol. You could have told a good story after that and I'd have believed every word.

This is a great picture.
House riding is big over here, but the gear the riders wear is so different.. most wear safty hatsm back protectors and such like. I would much rather feel the freedom of movement your riders have than the ones I see.

I love it...I wish I knew how to ride, but all I can do is hold on.
