Mounted shooting and 'extreme' trails
So, the husband is wanting to get into both cowboy mounted shooting, and the 'extreme' trail riding. I'm alittle confused on the last ones name, cause I've seen it called ranch riding, trail riding, etc. But basically, you and your horse have to do a bunch of things like cross a bridge, drag a tire, rope a barrel, go up and down sand/dirt hills, cross water, etc. I'm really proud of husband, he's training by himself, and Hondo is doing great. That horses trusts the husband so much its sweet.
I was wondering if anyone in the forum rides in either of these sports? If so, tips/tid bits to help us? What do you enjoy the most of it? What do find the horses are the most reluctant to do?
