I'm a total beginner at riding horses. Last summer I started taking lessons from Dexter, then after haying was over he took his grandson and his grandson's best friend (both 16) and I up into the Winds, it was an incredible trip. I'm 66 so doing that trip by backpacking is really out of the question even though I work out 6 days a week (except when I'm doing fishing trips). I have worked up to where on a really good day I can do 5 miles in an hour on the ellipical machine at 7,000 ft, but what I found when we were at a little over 10,000 ft is that my legs were fine, but my breathing really suffered when we started hiking up hill, level ground I was fine.
You really don't need to know much to ride a horse in a pack string as the horses tend to follow the horse in front of them, but things can always go wrong. Today the GF and I went on a short ride (I'm riding the spooky project horse she picked up last winter) and of course we ran into a couple of cow elk and then the rodeo started. Luckily my horse didn't get too wild and I was able to get him under control, but there definitely was a few tense moments there.
