On Saturday, me, my best friend, and another friend went on an all day horseback-ride. I took my four year old gelding (well, heíll officially be four on the twenty-third)... my best friend took her six/seven-ish year old gelding, and our other friend took her ten year old mare.
We had to trailer the horses to the trails... it took a while to load my boy, because Iíve never trained him to load or ride in a trailer and heís only been in a trailer once in his life (we donít have a trailer that I feel is safe enough to put my horses in). He eventually got on the trailer, though, and we were off. Our ride was the second time Iíve ridden my boy this year, and it was the roughest and hardest trail ride that heís -ever- been on. It went really well...
It was a lot of fun. We rode up to one of the highest points in Etowah County (a place called Buzzard Rock), then on the way back went around Conservation Lake (a Ďmembership onlyí -huge- fishing area).
Anyway, I took loads of pictures and figured I should share them... lol. I didnít get any photos of the ride up to Buzzard Rock because the trail was too rough, but I got some looking out over the mountain and some on the way around the Lake.
Enjoy! Sorry thereíre so many pics, I had trouble deciding which ones to post...!
Getting ready to leave...
