Trail and Other Fun Activities

"Just a trail horse" isn't a thing. A trail horse has to adapt to a number of potentially scary objects and environments. Whether your definition of trail is in the arena or in the great outdoors, here are some Carter Acres horses that are getting it done. If you have photos of your trails that you'd like to share, please send them to
