    First time in the water

    We have a pond in our backyard and with a little persuasion my girlfriend and I finally got our mares to go through it yesterday and they loved it. So we took some turns taking pictures...

    And these are just a few pictures taken before the ride...

    Thanks!! Yeah, I am a little concerned with the way the pond is set up. I may have to walk it first The way the previous owners set it up it looks like a dropoff so I'm concerned if the horses can't pull themselves back up we may be in for trouble. It's not like a river that slopes up on both sides. So I may hold back from ever doing it here...Or maybe I just need to drain it and redig it out

    Vegas HATES water.. It's like the end of the world if a 1" deep puddle gets in our path!

    Haha, my horses would be absolutely OUTRAGED if I made them stand in that much water. Shoot, they get angry if I turn them out in the rain!

    They are beautiful, and they make such a cute little couple in the pre-ride pics. Good luck in all your future swimming/pong re-digging adventures! =]

    Riding in water is a lot of fun but yeah I'd suggest maybe you walk it first. I rode my friends mare through water at the beach, she even went in for a swim! Loads of fun! My mare and gelding though on the other hand grunt and throw drafty fits when they MIGHT have to go through a SMALL puddle. Lucky you for just a little persuasion and in you go!

    Thanks everyone, they do seem to love it, we took them through again yesterday. Cami (Bay mare) splashes around and throws her front foot to create splashes the whole time.

    2 miles into the trails where I keep my horse, and across a few hay fields there is a very beautiful stream, I took my horse to said stream, he stepped in it fine, and then ran out the other side xD

    Cute horses!
