So who rides on the roads? To get to the trail where I'm going to start taking Gracie I have to walk about 500m on a road. It's not really busy, but most vehicles that drive down it are tractors/lorries/work vehicles of some kind. In England I wouldn't even give it a second thought because I was brought up with riding on the roads, but over here, who actually does road work to sort of teach the horses it's okay? Or do you just start riding and tell them everything's fine if something pops up? Wearing full fluro here (orange jumper, yellow tabbard, yellow tabbards on all four legs), I used to take my old gelding out but he was bombproof (if I can legally say that! ) on the roads and never batted an eyelid. Drivers here are so inconsiderate, they'll toot, honk, speed up, rev etc around the horses. I don't think they realise what danger they are creating. So how do you guys go about road training/riding?
