The roads today are busier than ever and it can be a nerve-racking experience riding on them. Even if you just ride along a road for a short distance to get from one safer area to another, the dread of this can spoil the ride ahead.
Many riders have no alternative but to use the roads to exercise their horses during the winter months, or to help strengthen horse’s legs for the coming season, or you may be bringing a horse back into work following an illness and riding on soft ground isn’t an option. Whatever the reason, trying to avoid using busy roads could mean that your horse spends long periods of time stabled or out of work and this is far from ideal.
If you find that you are putting off riding because the roads or lanes you use have become “no go” areas and you are constantly worrying about meeting large vehicles or noisy motorbikes, paper bags on the roadside, dogs barking, or kids playing on skateboards etc, then this Confident Rider Roadwork session is for you.
