Is it weird (or wrong) to be "just" a trail rider? No.
Why is something weird? It's because it is different. There's nothing wrong with being different. My wife likes veggies and I don't. That doesn't make one of is weird or wrong. It's just that we have a difference in what we like or our preferences.
You will come across some show people that may think its wrong because the horse isn't being used to its full potential. They think that there should be more purpose for the horse than just going down a trail. Now, I'm not saying that is how all show people are.
If trail riding is what you enjoy, go for it. There are many of us that only do that. I don't mind competition but I don't want to compete in shows. When I ride, it's for relaxation. I get enough stress at work. There's nothing wrong or weird about that. It's just my choice.
So don't feel bad or embarrassed about "just" trail riding if that's what you want to do.
