First, you gotta like horses.

If you cant control your negative emotions, think carefully before you even get started.
An angry person on, or real close to a horse can get hurt with horse riding.
We are made of muscle,big bones and leather, with lightning quick reflexes and can get a fright fairly quick.
When you have been hunted by lions, wolves, big sharp-clawed birds and hungry men for in some cases millions of years, the memories and knowledge passed from mare to foal keeps us on our toes and alive.
Ok I know there are no pterodactyls dropping out of the sky to get me but, what if some dopey rider is sitting on my back and it starts to rain, he goes to put on his dryza-bone all flapping and arms stretched out sideways. Now, maybe I’ve never seen that before, could cause me to feel a bit edgy. I move, he falls off, bad day at the office.
So here is the tip, do not get cranky, do stuff at home , help me out so neither of us gets a surprise, just a bit of
imagination and lots of patience.

What is Trail Riding Australia inc? is an Association of Australian Trail Horse Riding Clubs from across the “Sunburnt Country “.

TRA Clubs offer a friendly relaxed approach to non-competitive horse riding. From the trails in the dusty red heart and the west, over the rugged mountains of ‘ the Divide ‘ to tracks in the tropical north and the green fringe, we all have in common, the love of horses and riding with family and friends. came to life on January 2nd 2011 when a group of longtime trailriders of clubs from different states of Australia, met in a secluded tin shed atop a mist-shrouded mountain .

The outcome is a new National Association of Trailhorse Riding Clubs. The Members of this foundation and new clubs are the most highly valued asset of this Association
