People often say “It’s just a trail horse!” which implies that a trail horse is a horse which can only walk straight and nothing else. It could not be further from the truth. A good trail horse is light and responsive and a good trail horse is confident and trusts in its rider. But above all, a good trail horse is bomb-proof. Today I am talking about my experiences training young horses for the trail and how to get them bomb proof!
Do you have a story to tell? Or perhaps you know a special horse breed or horse culture or you have participated in an interesting sports or event? Feel free to contact us to become part of the Equestrian Adventuresses Podcast, the show for women who love horses, travel and adventure!
