Actually some thoroughbreds make the best trail horses. I use my thoroughbred gelding mainly for trails because he is so level headed
So yes any horse will make a good trail horse, and you don't have to ride your thoroughbred english. Shoot, there was even a woman running her thoroughbred in the NFR (he was running barrels) and he kicked butt.
