Nothing flat about riding around here. My daughters learned at a young age to sit balanced on the horses as they crossed all kinds of natural obsticles

Dropping off steep embankments

Dropping down stepping ledges

Enjoying the view from 11,000 foot

Oh, envious envious envious. I am from California originally and we learned to ride there and in Mexico (country of Mexico). The terrain was super for learning to ride. I believe that starting kids on rough terrain is like teaching kids to drive a stick shift first. They can then ride/drive anything.

oooo it looks kinda scary being on those rocky trails!!! Especially the narrow ones! I'd be freaked out (seeing as where I live is very flat)

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay,
he'll listen to me any day~♥~

Trails? What Trails are you talking about? We are just wandering around the desert. We are not following any trails.

Granted some days we actually do follow a trail

But most of our riding especially during hunting is just picking our way through the forest or sage brush
