Wink Go for a ride on Dobe?

I went for a nice bareback ride tonight on Dobe and got some pix and a couple of videos while I was riding. Unfortunately, I have one heck of a time catching someone else to video while I am riding but this will have to work for now. Sorry about the wind noise in the videos.

As you can tell, he is so excited about everything. LOL.








Here, I tried to snap a pic while we were loping but it is hard to focus on the camera and concentrate on keepin my balance at the same time.


Here is the first video, it was taken around the same time as the pictures.


And here is the second group of pix. These were taken after it got dark. It takes a broke horse to not spook when the flash from a camera goes off in the dark. LOL












And here is the second video. It kinda speaks for itself. LOL ;)

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yeah, pretty much everything he does is smooth. I could hold a martini without spilling a drop when he jogs.

BLM Mustang!! I wouldn't trade him for anything. I was recently offered $5000 for him but I just can't part with him.

woah, that's alot of money this day and age. Hah.

But I know what you mean, about just not being able to part with him. He seems like a really sweet boy.

I know, right? ;p In the words of my grandad, I nearly s**t and fell in it. But the guy who wanted to buy him is a wannabe rancher who has a thing for grays. And Dobe is a very seasoned ranch horse.

It took a long time for me to build that trust with him because he used to be so spooky at everything but just within the last year, he has really matured a lot mentally. I would gladly take Duchess for a while, so long as you wouldn't mind me using her on cattle a lot.

Thank you everyone, he is my baby and one of the reasons that I love him so much is that he is so smooth. He has got the sweetest little jog that I can sit all day long and not get tired.
