Whenever you introduce something new to a young horse it can always be a bit stressful. Riding out in a field for the first time is always an important milestone for any young horse, but especially for a young event horse. Not only will riding out help their cross-country education, but it will help them with their balance and confidence, which is important for all three phases.
