What are some good excercises to try when trail riding?
I like to do trot sets to keep my horse listening and still working while i hack
Riding through wooded trails or outside an arena! Usually just for pleasure
What is trail riding
Side passing along the trail back and forth if it is wide enough, cantering up hill, long trotting as fast as you can without breaking into a canter is fun
Trust excercises
On flatter terrain you can try extending and collecting. If you have big open fields you can throw in serpentines and circles to get them thinking
