That's the thing, before EVERY trail ride we go on together she rides the slowest her which if perfectly fine. Before we go out she says she wants o go through the trails and blah blah blah and we end up doing the same trail as always. The horse she rides is so well mannered and slow and is so easy. Weh were riding my horse I ride is really fast and she always freaks out and yells at me to slow down and walk by her. I was ok doing that for the first year, but she wont change. She keeps telling me she wants to go to a different place to trail ride in parks and stuff, but when I talk about it she always says maybe next week. She obviously wants to do more but wont. She needs to learn that the horse she is riding will do nothing to her most of the time (no horse is perfect). I just don't know if I should just let her stay in her little trail or if I should try and take her a little farther than usual. I don't want to push her too much, but enough to get her realizing that she will be ok going a little farther
