Drafts go trail riding.

Here's a shot of Drafts4ever and her buddies out trailriding with me at Bridle Trails State Park. I invited them up and they went to the bother of hauling the 3 drafts up to meet me. We had a very nice trail rider and all horses behaved beautifully. I am not in the shot 'cause it's me taking the photo.

It was a great ride! Now that I know where it is I wouldn't mind coming up by myself! I'll see if I can get pictures from the other phones as well. Thank you for inviting us! It was great meeting you! I forgot to give you a hug for the beautiful paintings as well!

What? One photo? You're torturing me here - I'd love to see more of them.

TOTALLY AGREE!!!!!!

I thinks it's a novelty to see people riding draft horses,.....especially on trails. It's such a rare thing.

Well, sadly, I only took one photo. But they took some and will post them later. So we had a Clydesdale, a Gypsy Drum , a Belgian, and an Irish Draft x.

Neenah is still asleep but I think she took a couple. Normally I'm a photo maniac but I left my phone in the trailer.

Beautiful horses! Great picture!

There's a full Clyde at my barn who trail rides. That horse is the ONLY horse that makes my horse stop and stare as he approaches. Not sure why but it always makes me laugh. My horse always knows when the big guy is out on the trails and always becomes super interested in the Clyde.
