I went out on my first trail ride with Montana on Monday morning :) His previous owner said that he needed a western bit (high port) because he would get rather strong on the trail. I have been riding him in a myler low port comfort snaffle and things were going well, but I knew how some horses were fine in an arena, but would act up on a trail. So needless to say I was a little unsure of how he would react. He was perfect! We would canter and trot and he listened to everything!
We went out at 9am and got back around 12:30 or so.
He only spooked once, but that was because a guy on a bicycle came up from behind us. We recovered very well from that though. He was fine with people passing by, trucks, crossing roads, everything!
I took some pictures on the trail, as well as a video :)
Sorry the quality on the video is so poor. It was taken on my phone.
