I know most people 'look down' on 'working' horses, but to me, trail riding is at the top of the experience level for a horse. What could better than having a horse that you can get on anytime, in any weather, and go absolutely anywhere with? We don't trailer to get places, we ride to get there.
Our finished and seasoned 14 yr old mare, Angel, was a working cattle ranch horse and won ribbons in team penning. When we go out on or off the trail, it's not that she trusts me, I trust her!
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
