1.1 Activity overview

A horse trail ride involves organised recreational horseback riding where dependent participants are led as a group, outside of small enclosed areas and through varying environments.

Horse trail rides include:

  • Short routine rides in tracked areas
  • Longer rides in untracked or remote areas including multi day rides
  • Rides where riders provide their own mounts.

The standard identifies specific section headings that separates requirements for:

  • Routine rides (see glossary)
  • Advanced rides (see glossary)

Where a section heading does not mention either Routine or Advance rides, it applies to both types of rides.
