Thanks for the advice. I have taken her for walks, but nowhere really far. I think before I take her on the trail by myself, I'll walk it with her. I know she's done that trail before, but not with just me. It would be good to see how she is without the other horses as well. I've always ridden her with a group of three or more. Just want to wait until the corn is cut down.
Went to see Shiloh today and all of the horses were being brought in. There is a lady at the farm that I often let ride Shiloh. She takes her on amazing trail rides and canters her and exposes her to things I'm not ready to yet. I like her to ride Shiloh a couple times a week. She's awesome. Anyway they were doing a drill with another Clydesdale, two ponies and two QH. After the drill they all raced around the sand ring and it was awesome!!
I've seen horses race on TV, but never in person. One of the QH's Fancy, is 21 years old and she lapped all of the other horses about 4 times! I was in awe of, not only the speed of the horses, but of the riding ability. The ponies raced and kept up and they were ridden by 12 year old twins!! Shiloh and the other Clydesdale didn't have quite the room to really stretch out and race well, but it was awesome to see my horse do something that I can't do with her.
I had an awesome time!
