    Hello, So, my horse is very responsive to both hand and leg aids. I use some tiny spurs, because my legs are short, but he is not that kind of horse where we have to dig your spurs in, unless you want him galloping at full speed. He is also very responsive to voice cues and body aids. Strong...

    The week-long trail ride in Ethiopia we completed this January was was the adventure of a life time: horse handlers who run as fast as galloping horses, forests full of cute monkeys and fields packed with fleas.
