How do horses find there way
I moved to a new barn & have been. Trail riding a lot lately. I rode some at another barn but on roads, it was hard to get lost lol. This new barn has trails that well arent really trails, they are more like deer pathes. Also we have to go out & come back the same way but the grass/brush cn be so thick you cant see your tracks. So how does this horse (we go out alone mostly) know how to find where he came from? Does he smell his trail even if its been wet & a coupld hours since we came through?
