The person sits there on their walking horse as I trot by, the rubberband
attaches from their horse to mine.  The farther my horse trots away, the
harder that rubberband tugs my horse backwards, then at a critical point the
pull is just too much for the walking horse and he gallops up on us and past
us.......< ...

Worse yet is when I am at a steady trot and can see a rider walking far in
front of me. As I get just a few yards from the horse in front, the rider
realizes I am there and asks his/her horse for a fast trot...(anything to
stay in front of me). Generally they are unable to maintain the pace and
slow (often on a very narrow part of the trail so that passing is
impossible). Then, once I pass them, they latch onto my horse and try hard
to stay hooked on. Often, I sense that their horse is struggling to keep up
and the rider is too bent on keeping up to be aware of the fact that their
horse may not be up to the pace......
This is an irritation I can do without.
Pat
