Haven't gone out on the trails-yet-but around home our two dogs (Border collie & Jack Russell) are pretty respectful of the horses. The BC, Nina, got kicked by a Percheron (like, football-booted across the field) a few years ago and she knows very well to stay out of the way. Casey (the Jack) is just terrified because the horse is so much bigger than her, but she usually just trots alongside. I don't know how they'll act when I go out-most likely they'll just run ahead and hunt and sniff around, but there's no way I'm ever stopping for a dog-and both of ours have learned that. The horse has always been fine with dogs, though. She doesn't react to them running under her feet and barking and playing.
