    Peggy, you are a goose. I have mates that have absolutely no sense of direction. I am sure they also lack common sense.

    Out riding once we were where we didn't know, hadn't been before. We came to a fork in the track. I broke a nice big branch off a tree to drop as a guide for me. My mate thought I was after a stick for my horse. It was about 6 foot long and very bushy. Not the sort of stick to use on a horse.:no:

    Maybe you need to take some orienteering lessons.:p

    Chester we were in fields and woods... and yes my friend and I are both directionally challenged :)

    I do have to brag and say Moosa did amazing once again and I got Sas into a lope !! When T finally started trusting Moosa he did take us back where we needed to be THE TRAILER... Sassy won't take you back she doesn't want to go back but the Moosa Man is a good boy and will

    I don't use one for riding... yet, lol. But I bought one at Advance Auto, it was like $100. It's small and easy to carry and it works really well. I can't think of what brand or anything that it is, but if you go to Advance I'm sure you can find it.

    Long piece of string. Tie it to his tail and when you get to the end of it, you will know because he will buck from the sudden tugging on the tail, turn around and wind the string up as you go.
