Are You Ready to Trail Ride?

Going for a ride outside the confines of the arena can be enjoyable and exhilerating, whether riding along wooded trails or in open fields. However, riding outside also has its challenges and dangers. Many horses are just more exciteable in an open environment and there is generally more for a horse to react to along trails as well.

Being able to trail ride safely is a goal for many new riders, and a very good goal no doubt, but I believe that is important not to underestimate the dangers of being out in the open on the back of a horse. Even the most experienced and well mannered horse will spook, bolt, or buck if the circumstances are right.

Trail riding will be both safer and more enjoyable when a rider has developed the necessary skills to stay on and control the horse, even in challenging situations.

In today’s video, I talk about a few of the essential skills for trail riding.
