Our mares aren't really bothered much by snakes and deer...the rare, but occasional jogger with the reflective safety vest, though...definitely something to keep your eye on!
BTW...our mares get bored in the ring/arena, so we just 'sneak in' ring type 'practice' out on the trail.
I would love to try riding on a beach (or even a nicely banked river) to get our mares more water experience. Unfortunately, all we have close by are steep banked, rocky creeks.
