Absolutely! I think it’s a nice way to relax and chill for both, horse and rider and it’s also good so the horse has time to cool down after a hard lesson or a good and intense ride! It is good not only physically but also mentally he gets the possibility to turn the brain a bit of just like, we need sometimes
Yes it is a great reward for when you are done with a ride, but also I would suggest not trail riding after every ride so the horse enjoy it more and won't expect a ride out on the trails but a few times a week is a good way to refresh your brain as well as your horse's.
yep! I love going on short little trail rides after my rides to cool my pony down. It is a fun and enjoyable way to cool down. But, if you had a pretty intense ride, I would do a shorter one, but most of the time it is a great idea.
