San Tan Lazer

           Lazer for lazy I guess, another hot cloudless shadeless morning on the bike, got to the trailhead and helped a fella biker stranded with his car and we got him back running and on his way. I sped off into San Tan surprised to see the lot full of cars and hoping to not run into much of them. Turns out I ran into more horses. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I don't believe these beasts and their owners really should be on heavily used trails dumping all over it and not in control of their animals but I guess who am I to say I ride a bike right. Well it was a good ride with solid loops minus the 10 or so horses I ran into with their owners. I had to each time give them tons of distance and feel out the situation and wait for instruction from the wannabe Cowboys, all were pleasant and uneventful despite one horse that was apparently scared of a big rock on the trail. I hate seeing horses acting up on the trail I get really nervous for their owners since getting bucked or crushed can have serious consequences. Luckily all parties were fine and this I all watched from 50 feet away. I don't think I will go back there during popular hours, I just dislike sharing trails with horses.
