For those of you who do not know...I went to Uhwarrie NC for the weekend. I decided not to take my own horse Major because of all the problems I have had with him....plus I had never been there before, plus Major has never been on a trail ride (at least not since I've had him). Boy did that turn out to be a good decision! As it turns out....trail riding is not flat ground like it is at home
. Anyway, I borrowed my friends horse for the weekend (a very experienced trail horse). He did fantastic! In a lot of places where the terrain was really rough, I just let him have his head and find his own footing and steer himself. It was a little scarey at times...but a great experience! I found out I really love trail riding. It is challenging for both horse and rider...a lot different from just riding around the yard or round pen.
