Smile Husband Appreciates My Horse!

All it took, was a trail ride with a trainer friend and another friend on one of the trainers horses! Our trainer put Don on a little mare that , well , let's just say she's a bit "jumpy" on the trail. I think the trainer thought Don knew more then he does because last year on a ride, Don rode T, and looked good and had great control of her.

What Don discovered is that T is a very well trained and sane horse. He told the trainer, after the second time he was off the horse, that T is controlled with a loose rein and mostly seat and legs. That she is smooth and not much bothers her, like a branch whipping her in the face. Unfortunately, the little mare he was on did not appreciate that and he went off her. After the second time, the trainer swapped horses with him and no further incidents happened for Don. Other then a new appreciation for my mare T.

He even told our trainer what a terrific job I've done with T, and doing the same with Walka! I'm so proud of hubby, and glad he is "seeing" that a good , steady trail horse who is a joy to ride is not often times born, but is made, with much work.

Now I need to teach Don a little trail sense and a centered seat!

Just wanted to share.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

A good trail horse is priceless.

My husband is such a marshmallow... he just wants to pet them and feed them and have them be his friend. :P I tried riding with him once and my gelding walked all over him. Now we're down to one riding horse and honestly I would like a second, to ride with friends or to teach Kevin how to ride properly, but I'm not sure if it would get enough attention. And Kevin is determined to get a draft... not sure why, he just is...

He's still praising my mare and my training of her. I'm feeling so good and well, kinda proud of myself . He told me today that even T's "steering" was better then either of the horses he rode. Of course, not having been there, I'm not sure exactly what he was doing, as I know those horses are well trained. Just makes me happy that he is so proud of T!
