Planning a ride

In the wild, horses travel some 20 miles a day searching for their food. The modern horse does not have nearly so much exercise and, for most, it is probably in confined spaces, but hacking out can be a very enjoyable experience for both the horse and rider, enriching the bond between them as they encounter new sights and sounds. Equally, a nasty experience can dent the confidence of the horse or rider, so following the links below will help to make the experience a positive one.
