Meeting Horses on the Trail Is A Huge Thing - Learn How From HorseSees!

The horse meeting on the trail is a huge thing.
I have spent enough time on horses to know the significance of those meetings.
Loved hearing the song at the end of the film, too.

User groups working toward peaceful multi-use trail

It has been a great accomplishment to get the Centennial Trail this far on the road to completion, and now we need to work towards the goal of safe and sane use of it.

Meaning that people with baby strollers, pets, mountain bikes and horse riders will all be ABLE TO COEXIST and enjoy the trail as well as those trails in the more backcountry settings, by using the three basic steps when meeting each other:
  • Stop
  • Hail
  • Move down
which are displayed in the movie I produced: What A Horse Sees!
Thanks, Everett Lewis

Meeting a Horse and Rider On the Trail

Website and Film

Hello, folks!

Here’s a great new resource for info on sharing trails with horses, mountain bikers, and hikers: “What a Horse Sees!” – a short film illustrating safe ways of passing horse and rider on the trail – as seen on

Here’s the nutshell version:
When you meet a horse on the trail, make sure it knows you’re a mountain biker, not a mountain lion.

Here’s how:
  • STOP — Horses spook easily, and may perceive movement, especially quiet movement, as a predator — and bolt. 
  • TALK Human speech is reassuring and comforting for the horse. Continue to talk until the horse has passed.
  • MOVE DOWN to the low side of the trail. If horse gets spooked, you don’t want it going off the steep side or horse and rider can be injured. 
This trail etiquette — stop, talk, and move down - to the low side of the trail — is based on the experiences of hikers, mountain bikers, and horse riders over many years, and is illustrated in our film What a Horse Sees!

Happy trails!
