Cricket and I are pretty big on trail riding. It keeps us both sane, I think. I go out mostly with my best friend Lexi, and her little mare Boo, but we also go out alone.
We do a little of everything. Walk, trot, canter, and we have a special trail we run on. When we're out with my friend Lexi, we sometimes race (is the width of a road so there's plenty of room). It's pretty fun. When we're alone, however, we usually just do a lot of exploring, hills, and chase the occasional coyote =)
What do you guys usually do on the trail? Do you have a trail "schedule"? Do you mostly walk? Or do you try to use all four gaits?? Walk, trot, canter, gallop??
