Arena riding is more challenging for ME because I'm just learning. I spent most of my childhood trail riding. We had a huge farm with all terrain--woods, prairie, even an old canyon. I'm a bit hyperactive and neurotic (in case you haven't noticed ) so for me right NOW I am just not really interested in any more trail riding. Maybe someday. :)

Yes I know about those speeding cars. We've got country roads where there is alot of trucking action as well as cars whose drivers are ignorant around horses. To date I have seen only a few horses who look confident and calm around such traffic. It wouldn't matter to wear one of those vests that state, please pass wide and slow, and this is where there's even a shoulder.

Best to stay safe and confident and walk where you are comfortable.
