If i leave the yard or arena, then it's going out for a hack.
I do road work through busy towns and along quiet lanes or join a network of purposefully built tracks. They snake for miles between local villages and pass through open land, woods and around lochans. They used to be dirt and grass, with small fences built off to the side but they were concreted over and the jumps removed to encourage walkers and cyclists. It's taken a lot of the fun out of them LOL.
There are old dirt tracks over the moors and through woods, although I have to ride on roads to reach them and occasionally cross a road.
It's very hard to avoid roadwork in the UK and, as I'm in a semi-rural area, I have to share the tracks with dog walkers, cyclists, families and sometimes dirt-bikers who rarely understand how to handle a horse and rider.
It's been some time since i travelled to another location for a hack. A couple of times a week we'd box the horses further north and west to isolated tracks that go through the Glens, forestry land and around the lochs. On the odd occasion, we'd head to the long wide beaches in the east.
