Group and Solo Rides

Horse & Rider - - We Hear You -

In the July 2015 From the Editor (“Bet­ter Alone or To­gether?”), Jen­nifer Paul­son asked where read­ers con­nect with other riders.

I trail ride twice a week with friends, take a les­son once or twice a week, and ride solo in my arena when I have time. I ap­pre­ci­ate each type of ac­tiv­ity. Be­cause my horse is young and green, I work on im­prov­ing his re­sponse to cues with my trainer; and on the trail, we just work on re­spond­ing to ev­ery sit­u­a­tion. In the arena, I usu­ally work on my own rid­ing skills, such as be­ing able to post at the trot.
