Tip #24: When Riding Together...

Many times when I ride with others or guests, they talk on their cell phones, or talk constantly to each other.  I realize it is great riding with friends but it is important to be very aware of your horse and your surroundings.  And, if you spend all your time talking to each other , you might as well be sitting at the kitchen table, in a car, or on the phone.  Try to remember to enjoy your special  moments with your darling and give him most of your attention. He'll really appreciate it and your bond will be even stronger and your riding day will be even better and more memorable.
