Horse Camping & Riding in the lower 48 states, a 13 month journey in 2013-2014 that I called SHLEP, which stands for Soul-searching, Home-seeking, Liberating, Equestrian Party (but I changed the P to Praise half way through the journey)
We went on a packing trip with Rock Creek up in the Sierra’s. I was a newbie horse rider. This guy was ponying a string of mules…in the water…in the middle of nowhere…like it was no big deal. I wanted to be able to ride like that.
