For trail riders, it’s often a combination of public and private land that makes this equestrian lifestyle possible. Kristen Kovatch details her recent experience and weighs the pros and cons of each.
I have a hard enough time just going on a regular trail ride with my normal tack, let alone tackling these extreme obstacles bareback and bridleless!
