Trails for the first time!

Hey everyone,

It was my birthday recently, so dad and a friend went to secretly get a horse float for me to take Pumpkin on a trail! Despite it being Pumpkin's first time in a float for at least 18 yrs, he walked straight on, no problems. Very pround of my boy!! =) When we got there, we tacked up and headed off for the 4 km ride. Took him a little while to calm down and be totally relaxed, but he was doing well. When we got back to the starting point, he loaded with no problems again, making me very proud! All in all, a great day. Here are some of the piccs I took riding I know you all are looking for!

Loading back home!

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
