I'm sure it would hurt to hit the trail with them on, at least while practicing/conditioning and see how it works. You can always take them off if you don't end up needing them right?
I know I won't <b>have</b> to come to a sliding stop, but if I have to stop her for any reason she will slide. I'll mostly be trotting, though, and I don't think she could hurt herself stopping from a trot.
And yeah, that's true. I can always take them off.
