Well Monday's are one of my days off, so I usually spend the morning at the barn (before it gets overly warm). I decided to do some "trail" riding...which where I live, really means riding along the streets, hahaha. I also need to get my girl's teeth checked (she's tossing her head a bit with her bit in), so decided to ride with just our halter, as well.
In short, she did AMAZING!!!! We went under FOUR underpasses, encountered tons of crazy yapping dogs hitting the fences as we rode by, we 'busted' our own trail, in which she was getting grabbed by tiny trees, snagged a peice of wire at one point (couldn't see it, as it was in long grass), and all she did was scoot foward until the wire let go of her tail...no buck, bolt, or side step...just walked forward a bit faster. We also encountered tons of big noisy trucks, and had to stand at a few stop lights. She was SO awesome, and relaxed through the entire ride...I think I'm going to stick with the 'bitless' way even after I get her teeth checked out, as there was such a difference in her general attidude. She was almost a peanut roller at some points, hahaha. No pics, sorry...hard to ride and shoot!
So anyone else have a super awesome ride lately?
