Trail riding, such fun on a draft!!

Went camping w/ my Cody and our POA on Memorial Weekend, had the best time. He's never been overnight anywhere but he could have cared less as long as his haybag was full :) Went on several 3-4 hour trail rides. He led, he followed, didn't care what we did, up and down steep hills, cantering, galloping, he was perfect :) Got lots of "How's the weather up there" comments from the group at first but those changed to "He's such a good boy" after a few rides. Actually, I think it was cooler because we got the breeze from the lake! He pleasantly surprised me with his endurance.





We're on a hill and the guy using my camera cut off Cody's feet!

He looks like an endurance-type built horse. Glad you had fun! I'm excited to go on a trail ride in August someplace other than our own trails lol!

They really are wonderful. I have to be careful tho, my friends can all fit under branches MUCH easier than I! Lol

I really like to ride Roothie my 18hh Belgian mare :) she is really heavy on the forehand but she knows how to control herself when it comes to stoping and such. It is quite cute watching her play because she thinks she is small LOL but she just plows through the other horses XD.
Branches... Dangerous indeed!

This is intriguing! I have often thought that I would love to have a Percheron or a Percheron/quarter cross. They are so awesome and kind and quiet! In riding one I did find that you have to be careful of low branches! My quarter horse is large but yea, I'm thinking that I would really like a draft.

He is also really good at what we call "bushwhacking" thru new places.....should have named him "Dozer"! Lol

Haha! That's so funny!
I agree. I LOVE riding my girl on trail. Makes me proud to be a draft owner. And it's a fun ride... like being on an elephant. Lol

We were at Lake Perris in southern California. I say we are "vertically challenged" when trail riding :)
