I love these rides when we take the horses on trails. We try to start them young but sometimes it is not possible. It can be a challenge for some but if it is possible it can be rewarding for everyone.
I love riding through the forest, but I'm not fond of spiderweb ducking. Someday I will train my horse(s) to be calm if or when I wave a long bamboo stick around their head and neck. This will come in handy to rid the trail ahead of webs.
