My opinion, too, Catrina. My horse is green and I like breaking off the trail. She has to pay attention where she puts her feet and it makes me work harder to give her the right cues as to what I want.
In many areas you can't get off the trail (rules to keep the area from being damaged) but at our favorite horse camp the area is open and there is lots of opportunity to challenge both of us. I love training (I call it riding)in the great open space.
