Riding the PCT with Mustang George

I just bought a very green mustang horse (named “Mustang George”) who has never encountered a backpacker before. I would like to ride him on the PCT north of me, but fear how he will react to some of the strange things hikers do around horses. I decided it would be safest to give hikers a heads-up that we are ahead on the trail and provide guidance on how to act around a horse by placing this sign trailside where we enter the trail. Hopefully, this will help ease George into his new life as a trail horse. (I also hope this will provide information to many hikers who have no experience around stock and will likely encounter them at least once on the remainder of their PCT journey.)
