Recently, I ran across a little video clip. It deals with personal self-defense while trail riding. I'd honestly never thought about this issue before -- at least not while mounted on a horse. I guess I'd always just assumed that up there, mounted on my mighty steed, I was kind of invincible. Or perhaps, subconsciously, I thought old Pinger would protect me from the bad guys. But, in truth, it never crossed my mind that someone would want to drag me, or anyone else, off a horse while out trail riding in the boonies somewhere. But we live in a tumultuous world. That being said, I watched this informative video clip and it opened my eyes a bit. Now, rather than hit someone with my water bottle, I can use the old Pool Boy as a weapon! I just have to remind him that he can still probably turn on his forehand.
