The inclines I rode on yesterday were on a winding, narrow trail. Lots of brush, trees and bushes on the sides. They weren't extremely steep, since I am not yet comfortable riding down anything too steep with her yet. I imagine her tumbling with me down them if they are too steep.
Taking what Gunslinger said too and not getting to close to horse in front of me. Mine would trot and catch up to the horse's butt in front of me where I had to pull back on the reins and keep her back. I figured she would know better than to do that, but it didn't seem to bother her that she was so close. Good thing he was a good horse for us and didn't seem to mind. However, I feel like if we would have waited to give more room, that would have sped her up more in order to catch up to him? These parts of the trail were winding around and had vegetation all around to where she may not see him if we stayed back ten feet or so. I guess she will just have to learn.
