Hey Horsemen and Horsewomen!
I got that kind of a problem... ;) I need to manage a short Trail Ride this Summer with a friend of mine, who is way more experienced than me. I don't know mich about riding, I did some western riding for a week, 4 years ago, but that's it.
So I got like 4 weeks of time to prepare myself, what shall I do? And what do I have to know? I do not feel like I can take care of a horse that's like 3 times as big as me, but I think I am learning very fast compared to others. No arrogancy or offense intended, just what I am thinking right now.
Am I good to go with the real basics? Moving forward, setting speed and making the horse stop? Are there any more essentials that are absolutely necessary?
I am looking forward to get some answers, help and hint from you! =)
Sorry if my English is horrible, I am not a native speeker.
