    I HAD THE BEST RIDE EVER!

    Today I went on a trail ride, well I did yesterday to. But TODAY I went to the creek! Gypsy was a lil barn sour but she did good. And then this is funny the grass is so high it reaches her head. So she's aggresivly grabbing it like "marararmraaararar im going to eat you!" Then when we got to the creek the little trail I rode right into a HUGE I mean HUGE spider and flipped out wacking my self squirming in the saddle and Gypsy just stood there like a good girl! :)

    So then we go down the bank area it took her a while to get comfortable to get it. But she did soooooooo well for the first time of the year. She was pawing the water, shoved her head in and was shacking it up and down in the water. It was so great. We walked a bit up and down till we couldnt go much farther cause of trees down.

    Then when we head back to the barn a owl spwooped down! AND SHE DIDNT SPOOK! ^_^ I was like an owl oh no expecting her to spook and she didnt she just kept on walking. Im so proud of my ponay!

    Heres a few pics of us, we even have the same expressions.

    That sounds like lots of fun :) I had a great lesson yesterday (I'm learning to canter at the moment) and given that and the previous day's lesson trotting without stirrups, my back is super stiff and achey! I hope that's gone by tomorrow, because my best friend (experienced rider), me (beginner) and Mum (non-rider) are going to a different stables that offers hacks along a river, over sand dunes, along the beach, and so on. I'm really looking forward to it.

    I've been on pony treks before, but they're just sitting on a sofa with legs, basically! I'm looking forward to being able to do some proper riding outside of the arena, it promises to be lots of fun. As I don't own my own horse, I don't get to ride outside of lessons - trail riding must be one of the best things about owning your own horse? Being able to just go for a ride?

    It is one of the best things among all the other stuff! That's great that you are learning to ride. Good luck at your first canter! :)
    Those rides do sound fun I wish I could take my horse on some of the WA trails but I don't have a truck/trailer. Kinda sucks.

    Thanks poptart she is crazy for grass. Its funny to see her let off for turnout cause she will take off then run around till she finds the perfect spot and plant her head.

    It's really fun, though my dad filmed it and I can't watch it without noticing all the things wrong with what I'm doing xD One of the things that's awkward about riding school horses is that when you get that itch to ride, you can't go. I only get two half-hour lessons each week! But this trek down to the beach should be good.

    Oh yah that is the bummer about school horses. Well maybe later when you get better you can lease a horse? There are a lot that are free lease or cheap and they are good horses. That's good that you can pick out all the things your doing wrong that's the best thing about video you can spot and work on all the things you need to!

    Well, I'm only at home for three more months (has it been four weeks already?!) before I go back to uni. I may continue my riding there, I may not, but it'd definitely have to be scaled back as the second year of my course is the hardest academically.

    Any options about leasing or anything like that will have to wait until this time next year at the earliest. I've got to stick to lessons for now. Oh well - I love the horse I'm riding at the moment. He's got a beautifully smooth canter and he's just an absolute darling.

    Well hey at least your learning. And hopefully if you stay in lessons by next summer you can lease one that is more experianced and you can do more things.

    Yeah :) I'm just lucky to be riding at all - I never could as a kid. Leasing a horse would definitely be dependant on how much money I'm able to save up.
