      7 Things to Teach Your Trail Horse
      Make the most of your trail outing this season by revisiting a few
      basic training exercises now.

      A good trail horse will go in the direction you point him, whether
      over bridges, through streams or down canyons.
      For most of us, trail riding is all about relaxation and enjoyment.
      When you leave behind the rigors and repetition of arena work, you can
      simply savor the experience of being in the saddle and perhaps getting
      to know your horse a bit better.

      But sometimes a trail outing becomes a test of wills--and your skills.
      It’s hard to relax on a ride punctuated by successive spooks or
      interrupted by refusals to cross water or pass “scary” objects. And
      it’s exhausting trying to control constant jigging or, conversely,
      squeeze a little momentum out of a sluggish mount. The disappointment
      is even greater if every other horse on the ride seems to be taking
      everything in stride. What is it about those horses that makes them so
      much more fun to ride on the trails?

      Finding the answer means looking beyond specific incidents and
      frustrations and taking a broader view of your horse’s training.
