I like to tack up my horse, go out in the woods and look for elk! We also look for antlers and explore places we haven't been before. When we are on the trails and roads proper, I like to practice gaiting my Foxtrotter and collecting the trot and canter with my Mustang. I like to work on stopping, standing, backing, and sidepassing too! I also like to weave them in and out of trees and bushes just to get them really soft and listening to me. And practice going home at a walk on a loose rein!
So really, I work in all gaits with my horses, and making sure they respect me and do as I ask, all while enjoying nature.
I guess that's not what you really asked, but when I saw "hacking" I thought that usually meant trail riding, lol!
So what is "hacking" exactly? Is it just a generic term for riding in general?
(I'm a western rider, can you tell?)
