What do you do to prepare yourself and your horse for riding stretches of dangerous or difficult terrain?
I want to be able to ride my horse on a nearby trail soon, but I've been told there are narrow trails and steep cliffs along the way. My mare is quite sane and surefooted, but what can I do to prepare us for this trail? I don't want to be stupid and get us hurt, but I also refuse to live in fear of harder trails.
Ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
