Trail riding is a whole lot more interesting than walking around in a circle in the ring :P

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Happy first trail ride! :P Sounds like a lovely time.

If he starts getting behind and you don't want a fight, just make him trot there on your command before he decides to do it on his own ;)

Then it can be a good idea to train him to go well alone and get behind the group a bit. You could for example slowly let the distance between you and the group grow before you give the trot cue (so first week it's 5 metres, second eweek it's 7 metres etc) and eventually you'll have quite a bit between you without him worrying since he know he'll catch up :P


Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.
