    Riding & Tying

    Recently while reading a book "The Story of the American Roads" I discovered something interesting. It seems that on the "Boston Post Road" that an arrangement was made for travelers to share Horses. It was called Ride and Tying. Most people walked so they evolved a way most people could share a horse. One couple could ride a horse a certain distance, tie it to a tree, and then go by foot. The people behind would reach the horse, climb on, ride along the trail, pass their friends on foot, then tie the horse to a tree, go on by foot. The friends would reach the horse, climb on and etc., etc., etc. Everybody got a chance to ride.
