For the majority of horse lovers, the most soul-satisfying kind of riding is not done in the ring at all. Trail riding — whether on a quiet country road, a beautiful beach, or a challenging mountain trail — improves every aspect of your horse’s and your own performance by helping you both to relax, get in condition, and connect with each other.
 
In Trail Riding, Rhonda Hart Poe offers a complete manual of everything you need to know before you ride off into the Great Outdoors. You’ll learn what to look for in a trail horse, how to choose the right tack and gear, and how to pack a horse for a short trip or an extended sojourn.
 
You'll find tips and techniques for training your horse in everything from crossing streams and bridges to “spooking in place,” from coming when called to taking one step — and only one step — when asked. You'll learn how to deal with wild animals and unexpected weather, how to get "found," and how to prepare for other trail emergencies from lameness to bee stings.
 
Evocative illustrations by Elayne Sears, “trail tales,” checklists, and a detailed resource section make this an indispensable — and irresistible — compendium of all things trail. Here’s how to ride off into the sunset and stay a while.
