Trail Riding Benefits

Trail riding offers many benefits to horse riders including a time to relax, an opportunity to observe nature, and an exploration of new terrain. It also supplies an excellent opportunity to improve confidence and equitation. Riding trails also provides the ability to socialize with other horse lovers or spend quality time with your family. For some it provides an opportunity to enjoy your horse without the stress of competition.

If you bring your own horse on a guided ride, the benefits of trail riding for your horse include increased responsiveness, quicker recovery from distractions, better balance, improved muscle conditioning and ability to better negotiate obstacles. It also offers a practical environment to practice maneuvers such as backing, forehand and haunch pivots, leg yield, and gait transitions. The change of scenery that riding trails offers is worth the effort of trailering to a new location.
