Re: RideCamp: First outing surprise

Hi, it sounds like mountain bikes are something that you should
introduce your horse too -- just to make sure he doesn't run away
from the "wheeled horse" :)

I was wondering if anyone else had this problem -- last summer I was
riding George (a QH) on an organized trail ride (about 25 miles)
and he was of the firm belief that he must be at the front of the
pack -- until the "big-eared horse" (a mule) did his ee-aw sound
directly behind george.  George naturally hooked an immediate left 
and tried to run off.  Does anyone else condition their horses to
the sounds mules make?
