Kim McCarrel has been an avid trail rider for more years than she likes to admit, and has ridden the horse trails all over Oregon and SW Washington. Her books are must-haves for Pacific Northwest trail riders. They include “Riding Central Oregon Horse Trails,” “Riding Northwest Oregon Horse Trails,” “Riding Southern Oregon Horse Trails,” “Riding Southwest Washington Horse Trails,” and “Riding the Metolius-Windigo Trail.”
If you or your horse get hurt on a trail ride, do your friends know the cell phone numbers for your spouse or your kids? Do they know the number for your vet? If you post this important information on a card or label in the back of your trailer or another easy-to-access place, your friends will know who to call in the event of an emergency.
