Horse Podcast Ep 185: Competitive Trail Riding – Fun & Horsemanship

Equestrian Adventuresses Travel and Horse Podcast Ep 185 - Competitive Trail Riding

In today’s episode, I am talking with Alice Perryman about her favourite equestrian sports: Competitive Trail Riding. It is a little bit like an endurance ride, but slower and it involves different obstacles you have to tackle during your ride under the watchful eye of a horsemanship judge. By the end of the day, it is all about having fun with your horse, helping each other and camping.
