Unfortunately, your analogy doesn't work, in this case.
When you go riding through the fields, you are really not affecting nor
interacting with anyone.
But, with writing, you are attempting to communicate with one or more
individuals. If everyone does something different, how is the reader
supposed accurately know what you are attempting to say/communicate?
Whether or not there's two spaces at the end of the sentence doesn't
make a lot of difference in that communication, IMO. But, I think it
does effect the ease with which an individual can read the written word.
