Trail horses are suited for riding trails. A gelding or castrated stallion are arguably the best for trail riding as they are less dominate and have fewer hormonal challenges when they are in their breeding season. Not all trails are designated as trails for horses. Be sure to follow the rules and regulations for horseback riding on your trail and in your area. Chose your trail that best suits your horse’s capabilities. Look up reviews of trails to find what you want out of your trail riding experience.
