wheel whip laura fullerTyler Johnson, Laura Fuller, and a "somewhat-official" hound truck

My daughter, Savannah, started riding with Belle Meade Hunt (GA) eight years ago at the age of twelve. I am not a rider. Yes, I have ridden (slowly, on a trail). Riding is her passion, not mine.

However, I am not a mom that wanted to just drop her kid off with a hug and a kiss and a “Have fun and be careful!” So, I started hitching rides with the kennelman in the old hound truck, or in the back of Unit One (another old pickup truck with not very comfortable tally-ho benches in the truck bed), or with pretty much anyone that would take pity and let me ride along.

As a fellow road whip, I really appreciate this article and the numerous pieces of advice. Road whipping-in really is fun although not quite as exhilarating as riding. In our country, I am often required to go quickly from one area to another at speed. A guest once asked if I had ever been a race car driver. I replied that I had not, but I ALWAYS rode a thoroughbred!

I just loved this piece. I'm not sure if one could really fulfil this role in the UK but foot following was fun - and riding better even in our crowded corner!
