Today I met up with a bunch of people I didn't know and one person I did for a New Years Day trail ride. I always like starting my year off right :D Gwyn was an ass loading and roundpenned herself, then hopped right on. Have some screen shots from my go-pro video.
Of course it's all tilted. Sorry. I still can't figure out which bit is tilted (I suspect the helmet).
There was a giant pile of deer guts just on that other mowed path.
The black horse (a Canadian) got spooked by a twig snapping and apparently thought it was a gunshot. He used to be a mounted police horse.
We kept the trail ride to walk, which was good since I've sprained my ankle. I spent half the ride with my left foot out of the stirrup because keeping it flexed for too long was getting painful. Thankfully my boot was overall supportive.

There was a nice lake we rode by.
I used my new reins and they were so wonderful and thick in my hand. It's perfect for trail riding and just the right length too. Not too short, not too long. I will want a rein loop thing though to make sure I can give Gwyn enough length for eating and drinking on the trail.
The benefits to being around a bunch of endurance riders is that they often have the colored tack you can use to see if the color will go nicely with your mare :D
New riding friends are the best. I’m glad the reins felt nice. I hope they last. That was my only worry with mohair reins.ReplyDelete
I love paying it forward when I can to other eager barn kids tooReplyDelete
