Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 26

Trail riding can be challenging and stretch your comfort zone; being prepared before you head out is key to having an enjoyable ride. In the next few Gazettes Kristi Fredrickson will be presenting some exercises to help riders prepare in the arena for the challenges of riding out on the trail.
