Match Your Gait

Trail Rider - - HOT ON THE TRAIL -

Tra­di­tional trail-rid­ing pro­to­col sug­gests that if you meet an­other rider on the trail or are rid­ing with less ex­pe­ri­enced rid­ers, you should match the gait of the slow­est horse. If you’re lop­ing across a meadow and see other horses ap­proach­ing at a walk, slow your horse to a walk. Match­ing your gait will help all present stay safe and in con­trol.

When you see oth­ers ap­proach­ing you as you ride, slow down to match the gait of the slow­est rider.
