-I wear a helmet, carry a cellphone, and the trails are at my boarding stable-
He's very bold, but definitely not an experienced trail horse.
So then it hit me. This isn't some scenery viewing excursion! This is just as important as arena work! I need exercises to perform!
He doesn't have any specific issues that I've noticed yet, except he gets.. Excited? He can get jiggy at the walk, which makes me hesitant to trot him by myself. He's not nervous or spooky or anything, just forward and focused on the great unknown!
So I did some weaving, circling, stopping and backing up, and laterals, but I want more to challenge him and myself.
So I guess I'm looking for exercises to do on the trail, by myself, to help us be a stronger more experienced team!
Thanks for responses!
