Mountain Trail is a judged event designed to show the confidence, boldness and athletic ability of all breeds and all disciplines of horses, ponies, and mules while being challenged by a variety of natural trail obstacles.
Mountain Trail requires navigating obstacles at a walking pace for the lower levels. At higher levels horse and rider will be required to navigate through the designated obstacles at a trot/jog and lope/canter, or gait. There will also be an in hand class for all levels for those who prefer to not ride, have a young horse not yet started, or mini equine partner. The combination of loping, cantering, trotting, jogging and/or gaiting makes this sport move along at a faster pace than that of arena trail classes. The horse and rider should be able to willingly assess and enthusiastically navigate new obstacles with finesse and in a safe manner.
