Well, Thumper and I have been stuck in the indoor all winter, and today was a nice day, so I decided we'd go have some fun in the snow :). Thumper was a bit fresh, but I could tell that he wasn't trying to get out of work or whatever, it was just because he was frisky :). We had so much fun! It was definitely a workout for Thumper plowing through the snow :). It is, of course, also good for me to practice controlling him out of the confines of an arena.
^haha he was pretty frisky :). It's my first time riding Thumper in the snow, and i'll definitely be doing it again sometime soon! It keeps him happy and willing to work; he loves being outside and going on trail rides.
