PLEASE READ – WALK ONLY: This is a great way to start the riding season. If your horse is out of shape or nutty from a long winter off, this is the ride for you. If you are just breaking out of the ring and ready to explore the trails with friends, this is the ride for you. If you are looking to move out, exercise your horse, move faster than a walk; this is NOT the ride for you.
