[RC] Trails/Warnings that bikers are coming - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Diane Roby diane_roby2002@xxxxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Someone mention having bikers use bells or someother device so that horses can 
hear their approach.  I'm wondering under what conditions the horse hasn't 
already heard the biker?  There is a place near me, Turkey Mountain, where 
mountain bikers share the trails with horses and hikers, and the occasional 
weirdo.  There are steep areas (nothing like CA tho) and blind corners.  Never 
have I ridden a horse there (QH, POA, Arab) that has not known before I have 
that something else is on the trail.  Now the bikers have sometimes been 
surprised but have always stopped, dismounted and waited for us to pass by 
before continuing on down the trail.  we even tell each other about things such 
as downed trees or gulleys that the other might run into.
