OK. Here is the problem. We don't have trails around the property, so I'm riding in neighbor's ring and can ride in small field (just 5 acres) next to it and a little bit next the the hay field. I plan on introducing Jemma (who will be 4 in April) to trails coming Spring. The only way will be to haul her to the park (which is 20 mins from us or so). In all books I read they are talking about "sweet short rides outside the pen". It's certainly not a case for me with no place to ride outside.
So my question was anyone in situation like that? Any advices on how to make the experience less stressful and more safe for us? (I do make her use to plastic bags etc. etc. etc., but these all in ring, unfortunately). Using other older experienced horse may not be a choice (I'll try to ask people from local clubs, but not sure they'll be happy to deal with green horse plus she's not very horse-friendly as I posted in my different post).
Thanks in advance!
