There are some really great trails in my community that my friend and I would like to take our horses on sometime. I'm not sure about her mare, but Nell seems to enjoy going out with other horses. She's pretty steady, but a little nervous when we ride out alone on our own property, not much really gets to her. My only fear is the dirt bikers who frequent the trails this time of year. Nelly has never seen a dirt bike before, and some of the trails are pretty narrow. I'm afraid to know what would happen if a bike came up behind her. She has seen motorized vehicles in action before, my dad is usually out on the four wheeler or tractor and they didn't seem to bother her much. What are some ways to be safe on the trails?
ETA: I just read that hunting is permitted there ... :/
