Nononon. Over the years there had been 7 horses that died because there are roots sticking up that if your horse steps in it they will break their leg, or if they slip at all, or they throw off balance they will fall back down the hill. 4 people where seriously hurt. Supposedly one person died but I doubt it. I knew my pony could do it. I just grabbed the horn, leaned forward and kicked. I let loose of my reins, I knew he'd get us up the hill. It was the funnest thing i'v ever done. My pony likes harder trails, I don't guide him on trails, he typically follows the path so I just drop my reins and just do whatever. He ususally likes to go on harder paths. Like that hill, he wanted to, he stopped at it and just looked up and kinda hesitated. I just kicked and he went.
