What is trail riding?
On this page we define trail riding as multi-day horse riding trips, usually using bridleways or off-road trails, that take horse and rider on a journey from place-to-place.
Trail ride overnight accommodation will usually be in a different place each day, and may be in bunk houses, B&Bs, guest houses or hotels; camping may be used in some remote areas. Luggage may be carried in saddle bags on the horse, by pack ponies/horses, or be forwarded on by vehicle each day.
In North America, in particular, a trail riding trip might also be referred to as a pack trip or an inn-to-inn tour.
