^^ As Maura said, always ride on the outter edge of the fields. Adding to what Maura said as to they reasons, it also shows respect for the owner/farmer of the land.
The new barn I am now at, I have access to 200 acres of land to ride on, this is the land that the Fox Hunters use, and we end up around quite a few different fields, and we always ride on the outter edge.
Just try to not have your horse spook at something, causing your horse to leap out into the field, with you flying in some acrobatic manuver, landing on the side of your horse on your knee's...leaving a huge indent in the corn field.....lol.
Getting back on, laughing at what just happened with your pals, soon realizing the huge "gap", or "lack there of" of corn husks, advertising where we just were to the farmer. *smacks forehead*
After our hack, I had to drive over to the owners place, knock on their door and appologize for the nice big crop circle we left. I ended up leaving, mumbling to myself "stupid deer hut" *that's what he spooked at*
We were trotting along, on the outter edge of the corn field going to the right. All of a sudden, a large black "hut" that a Hunter set up to prepare for the Deer Hunting Season, appeared to the left of us as we were going around a bend. Nelson saw it, leaped in the air, zooming to the right, causing me to soar to the left. When we both landed, we were in the corn field. I landed on my knee's, right beside him - somehow. lol
Great fun *rolls eyes*
