Not at all. That's a great way for performance horses to retire (as long as they aren't batty).

It's totallly fine. I went through a faze when I didn't want show no more and just wantr trails. And all my good friends where still showing.

No one cares. Taking a horse on a trail is a whole different animal. Takes just as much work. Big scary things are out their. :) I love it

I went from hunt seat to trail riding only for nearly 20 years...and still love to do it, but I've also started getting back into doing some competitive things.
The point is, there's NO wrong way to enjoy being with your horse!

There is nothing wrong with that at all. I go trail riding all the time and I have never shown.

I have never shown but always trail rode! I love getting out by myself or with friends for a day out on the trails......

Not weird at all. Trail and endurance horses require the same amount of training and skills as an arena horse.

Start out with just fun casual riding and you might decide that you would like to try some open shows - maybe doing trail stuff!

What kind of horse are you looking to get? Hope you can get one soon!!!

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

Why should there be a problem? If you ask me, it's the people who want to perform (not just with horses, but in anything) that are weird.
