This has to be my favorite picture of my guy. This is me vetting him in at his first Endurance ride where he completed 50 miles in 6 hours and 34 minutes. And the reason it is so special to me is because so many people told me I would never get him there and that if I rode him someone would be picking my pieces up off the trail. He was severely abused before I got him in March 2013 and really did make the hair on the back of my neck stand up for the first 4 months but I stuck it out and in November 2013 he finished his first 50 miler in 10th place and showed all those people what a little TLC and some patience does.
Here are just a few of my favorite pics from this year. Several firsts and highlights I had with my boy Dodger <3 We went to our first hunter jumper show and won several blues along with reserve champion in our division. We also took part in an extreme cowboy challenge series coming out first in the adult division. AND we have been doing alot of bridleless riding and strengthening our bond. He has grown up so much :)
