Horse Trail is a competitive riding discipline where rider and horse negotiate a series of obstacles on a natural path.
The participants, one at a time, guide their horse and are rated at each obstacle on agility and ability to guide the horse in every situation with emphasis on safety and calm.
These paths or trails are designed to reflect a real situation in which rider and horse can be found in nature, like a bridge, a river, a door, a slide, jump, having to dismount and walk guiding the horse, etc.
