We broke a lot of young/green horses to the trails this way.
Once they had “whoa and go” perfected, they didn’t need anything else as we put them behind well seasoned trail horses and off we went into the mountains, it some groomed four-lane hack in a metro park:)
Four hours of that gave them twenty hours of formal lessons in arena and gave us a whole big bunch of fun with lunch out on the trail:). They came back knowing the basics of neck reining and some backing up.
I can’t speak for horses being groomed for the show ring.
A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.
