    Race time!

    Hehe so today I decided to go ahead and just "race" my friends quarter horse with my TB. Well Hero is an ex-racehorse and has been off the track for about 2 years. He is pretty responsive under saddle. Still learning thou but I only ride him in a halter because he usually listens to me. He transitions down fast and smoothly. Well I have yet ask him to let it "loose" and just let him run. So today I figured i'll go ahead and gallop and just play race. Haha and lets just say Hero remembered how to race. It was so much fun and smooth but then Hero really got into the zone and would not stop at first but after I about fall off he came back down to a trot. And he was rather calm the rest of the day and colleted nicely. Haha but it was so exciting!!

    Well that is more to say since it's 90'F here it would be nice to be able to have a horse that will go fast without you getting all hot trying to keep them at a canter.

    Haha I know! I got rather worked up actually trying to get him back down to trot. Haha he would not stop! I'm not used to that. He really got into race mode!

    My OTTB's trail riding buddy is a QH too. We have one spot where we let them haul butt. The QH always takes the initial lead. Then my boy runs him down!! Very fun.

    Junior will win. We need to race again. Im telling you.... the little guy can book it! And since we can only gallop for a little while before the hill he will for sure win. :) maybe this weekendd?.... if ya don't change your mind again......
