For any class with rail work, passing a horse (or being passed) is a fact of life. While passing can’t be held against you on the judge’s card, the manner in which you pass and your horse’s demeanor when you pass (or are being passed) can influence your placing in the class.
Proper planning can make all the difference when it comes to enjoying a trail ride and trail ride safety. Without it, you can wind up in predicaments ranging from inconveniences to serious threats to your safety, as well as that of your horse and your trail-riding pals.
