I work on my riding in an arena because the trails have more cactus & rocks for me to land on if things go really bad. My little arena has dirt that feels like concrete, but at least it doesn't have spines!
Once my horse & are are doing it right - or at least how I want - in an arena, we can try it on a trail. I'd rather have the horse hit the fan over smooth dirt, no matter how hard, than on roads, near cars, surrounded by cactus, etc.
