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

I guess I can't really add anything else to "What is trail riding?" but I can say that I love your photos...they look like something out of a movie set in medieval times...I especially like the third one by the tree...

In South-Tunisia -where I am going again in December to man&horses and for the first time in my life for a Sahara horsetrek, controlled riding is really uncommon. Trail riding is the only possibility.
For me it was a totally new experience! So I read like a hungry-one all the stories!
I also have a cloak like you Zab -only in wintertime- and it makes me feel like a wild princess.

I want to add one thing to your question about trail riding so you never get confused. There's a class in alot of shows called "trail" but it's just going over various obstacles like poles on the ground, gates, water boxes, and bridges. The point is not to hit what you're not supposed to hit and look good doing it :)
Here's a nice video of it:

Yay That's good because I always find people really confused when I talk about doing trail, haha. Or my mom will tell someone she's watching me do trail and they think she's somehow following me down the road... It's kinda funny :]
