On to the trail walk! To be honest, I hopped on for a bareback ride at the beginning, but dismounted as soon as we reached the forest.



They say you can go galloping down this road - will try someday!



Snickers observes the new trails carefully...



And then proceeds munching away happily:





What is a walk without a good rolling!







There's an old excavation pit nearby, which has turned into a shallow lake over the years. We were told that it is perfect for going swimming with horses, but, while the water is still too cold for that, we just explored it in other ways:





Playing at trot through a large puddle:



On our way home, Snickers got alert over a group of trail riders going through the woods:



And neighed back to a...rooster singing in a nearby farm.



Back at home...

Great pictures! Looks like the two of you had a wonderful time!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Some bits of our spring:











A field in the morning. I took the picture in a simple joy about the new grass emerging from the soil:



The same field in the evening, on my way home... Wildfires are a huge problem around here during springs. Ignorant people just burn them down, instead of taking proper care of their properties, and every year huge territories are being burnt to the ground. :( This time, it was very close to the barn. We called the firefighters and they worked the whole day, until everything - almost 50 acres! - was extinguished!





A very strange scenery. There's a house with lots of cheap sculptures on its' lawn, so I present an elderly man, who's covering himself up with a...tail of a fish, I suppose...facing away from the ashfield.

Snickers being a big boy, before some 10 minutes of working with a bit. He went nicely, but I got too tense, so I took off his bridle soon and we just worked some more in a cordeo:







Went for a walk in the fields after that:



I love how their nose gets all wrinkly when they eat. :)







He's started accepting me touching his back and his belly while he is laying on the ground, and I can also swing a rope or a whip around and over him with no issues.







On the edge of the world, together. :)

I should post more pictures, right?

Got these this morning - some pictures from last autumn, taken by a photographer who visited us back then. It was a wet and muddy day, and Snickers was being his usual messy and playful self. :)









Holding the whip - that's something he enjoys a lot :)

Snicks is just way too cute!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
