I do alot of camping, but I am just over the border from you in BC.

I also have 3 horses, but only one dog. I do have 3 cats though!
Ride safe, return safe.

Hi Bean Welcome to the Forum. Nice Picture. We ave too many horses, three dogs, 2 cats, and a parrot. Oh yes and an injured pigeon.

We do have a lot of trail riders here so I think you came to the right place[8D]

Great picture, beautiful horse. I bet you have more pictures ..............[?]

Hey Ron, welcome to the forum. Lots of trail riders here and some campers, so I'll think you'll find others with your interests.

Great looking horse you have there. What breed is he/she? My first thought was Tennessee Walker, but don't know why. My horse, Max, is 1/2 TWH, but not gaited.

We have 4 horses, 3 dogs, and 2 cats. Here's a pic of my clan. Me on Max, my wife on Oz (Arab) and Adam on Daisy (Belgian - 2 y/o) we also have Annie, a Missouri Foxtrotter. (By the way, also a daughter, who is not into horses with us.)

Howdy ole-bean,
I'm in the Seattle area, and I know there's at least one other DE-er from nearby. Another regular poster lives near Spokane, and another new poster from Bend... so there's a few of us northwesterners around. I plan to do more varied trail riding just as soon as I get myself a trailer. Who knows, maybe someday we can organize a NW version of the midwest DE trail rides!

Picture is of east side of Mt. Hood from Surveyors Ridge.. Camped at Bishops Prairie Horse Camp.. southeast of Hood River Oregon..Our neighbor and friend Rick and his horse Hogan in foreground..[img][/img]You have probably heard plenty in the news lately about MT. Hood and the lost climbers..

Maybe I need special instructions on photo posing??


I hope all ride a good horse!!
couldn't get to your pics this time. Might recheck your photo address.

Got it now! Wow, that's awesome country. Is Mt. Hood area where you do most of your riding/camping?

Hook posted some instructions on photo posting under tips and ideas, I think.

Keep 'em coming!
