Hill Country

Position yourself right for trail riding up and down hills.

STORY AND PHOTOS BY HEIDI NYLAND MELOCCO

As you ride your horse on hills, you’ll need to keep your center of gravity aligned with his so that you don’t lose your balance or cause your horse to work harder and lose his balance. In simple terms, you’ll lean forward to go up a hill and lean back when going down.
