Hand walking on the trail.
It's so beautiful out today and I really want to do something with my horse but my back is killing me (i don't get to see my chiro until the 10th) so the plan was to walk my horse on the trails today near his new house.
Obviously with the weather being so nice I anticipate seeing other riders/horses, so i'm assuming i'll just keep him off to the side and let others pass us. I want to take him out for the learning experience but also to help build his confidence.
Is there anything else I need to consider when taking him out like this? Also, when riding on the trails does it bother any of you if people are just taking their horse for a walk?
I think i've only ever seen anyone walking their horse on the trail here once, and that's because I think she'd fallen off and was walking him back to the trailer.
