I REALLY want to go on a trail ride with chance since she's sorta on hard work break lol cause of her feet, but she gets nervous and tends to spook and just plain wants to get out of there. Earlier today I took her a quarter of the way down the trail and she got so nervous and was ready to bolt [i wasnt riding we were walking in hand] so we had to turn back around and do our normal routine.
I need some ideas to get chance use to walking on trails/ trail riding and not get so nervous. I don't want to just limit her to the indoor arena, outdoor arena, round pen. I think it would be fun for her and me to go on trail rides.
Also to get to the cross country course you have to go down a trail!
Ugh help please!
