I have been riding my gelding in the arena in a bosal and have found him to be very smooth and steady. I want to get out of his mouth and have been working on using softer and quieter cues while schooling. I have even dropped the reins for extended periods to find out where our "holes" are in our training. I don't have a good stop yet so we're working on that now.

HOWEVER, riding in the arena in a controlled environment and trail riding are two very different things. I am very apprehensive about going out on the trail. We're going to try it and I'm committed to working out the kicks but I have no illusions that this could be an extreme challenge.
