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.
