Hello everyone, quick question. I am writing a novel that takes place in Kansas during the late 1800's. Part of the story involves a trek through the woods or forest (not sure which is more appropriate since pictures are a little hard to come by). If there is a trail (specifically a wagon route) passing through the forest, would it make sense for a cloud of dust to be visible where horses are being ridden? I haven't visited Kansas in a very long time so I can't remember much about it, and my own research hasn't been very illuminating.

Is there anyone that can determine the plausibility of this, and if it does work, would it be jarring as a reader to read about a small cloud of dust on a trail in the forest? I am kind of worried that it wouldn't sound right, even if it was true. Thanks in advance.
