Hi, I am very new to trail riding, and am leasing a wonderful guy my the name of Splash. I was originally trained in arena riding, basic English skills, but it's been 20 years or so since riding at all. Well, this past weekend I took my buddy Splash out with a fellow newbie, taught by her daughter, who rides western. While out on the trail, she remarked that she liked that her horse always was alert while on the trail. (Ears pricked and looking around). Now, from what I remembered from my lessons 20 years ago, was that you want your horse's ears turned back, toward you, to show that he's paying attention to you! Now, while riding recently, I've been allowing Splash to look certain things, but aim to have at least one ear in my direction.. (So he won't forget I'm up there? I don't know!) So tell me, where SHOULD those beautiful ears be pointing?
