There's nothing better than getting out of the arena, going on a nice trail ride and having a good gallop on your horse after a stressful week. We played in the creek, did some nice stretchy trotting, cantered through a huge puddle, chased a chicken, and just had a blast exploring and goofing off. I love my horse. <3
Hope this post isn't considered spammy, but just thought I'd share.
And I'm sure there are lots who'll agree.
It was just such a nice ride.
I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it
Very fun. I absolutely adore trail riding cause there is so much fun stuff to look at, explore, and experiment with. Plus a good long gallop will certainly take your mind off any stresses you have. ;p
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/
definitely! I have been babying my horse because of his back issues, so haven't ridden him for about two weeks... This week the chiropractor didn't show for his appointment and I found out I have to wait another week for my new saddle... I instructed all day at PC today and jumped on him to ride home... He was just so good. Doing a nice long trot and comfy lope on a loose rein... definitely made me feel good after a long disappointing week!
