What's going on there?
The ground looked solid. It wasn't. Pretty much everything behind him is just a meter deep of water that looks like grass.
He (and me) was a little shook up, but totally fine.
I see, was the horse able to get out on its own, I feel like it's a good way to loose him like he keeps fighting to move out and die of being too tired.
I had to grab him by the bit and pull, and he kicked his way free. Took us a few minutes and the help of a shepherd who lived about 300m away.
You're lucky, it's a great trip you did but I wonder what would have happened if you got stuck in the middle of nowhere :) Were you leaving the horse on its own during night time or you had to keep him attached in some way?
Ha yeah, that was my fear too. Or that he was injured. When this happened we had just left a shepherd that I had stayed with the previous night, so we weren't really out in the middle of nowhere. I had an ankle leash with about 7m of rope and stake that I drove into the ground every night when we camped on our own. Most of the time though, I camped next to a yurt, and I'd let him loose at night with the shepherd's horses.
Did you write a post somewhere about that adventure, with details about cost, etc? That's a very interesting travel.
No not yet. You interested in trying it? I'm going back next summer.
Well that's a very interesting way of going around, always thought about something similar yes.
Shoot me an email, I'll send you the details on cost, how, where, what, etc. if you want to try it on your own sometime.
