trail horse camping
is this a thing? I haven't heard of it at all. basically what I'm thinking is taking a trail horse with some basic camping supplies and riding the horse out in the wilderness and at night tying it up to a tree or something. is this something people can do? I really like the idea but I'm not sure if it's plausible

Sure is something you can do. Do it somewhere that you're allowed to though. In Australia there are a number of routes in the Alpine National Park that are fine, and many that are off limits.

Horses can have a serious degrading effect on the environment so keep to the trails and where you're allowed to be.

I went when I was a kid, although it wasn't like that. We'd come back to the same campsite every night after trail riding all day.

You couldn't travel solo with a horse for more than a day or so without an extra animal just to carry feed. They eat a lot more than you do.

You're not going to find anyplace "off the map" that you can take a horse, either. So that usually means you're stuck with normie campgrounds and trails that you're not allowed to sleep on.

Mule trains are back-country cancer

Yes it's a thing. Pack trains fuck up the trails pretty badly though...

I was just about to make the same thread. I've seen it done in a National Forest, no clue about the legality of it. It would be so cool to go straight up 19th century for a week.

It's legal on USFS and BLM land, but some high-traffic areas may have limits on group size or grazing to prevent damage from overuse.

This was a pretty sensitive wilderness area. I wouldn't have taken horses in regardless of whether it was allowed.
