Yeah I don't ride with her, we just met up on the trail, and the person I was riding with stopped to chat. Anyway, I have a coming 4 year old who got back from trainer a month ago and I'm putting as much trail hours on him as I can this summer. It just bothers me that some people feel the need to critique when not asked. Didn't like my saddle pad, and it went on and on. I love going out with a few people in my neighborhood who are very laid back and just enjoy getting out, so I'm lucky. I haven't felt brave enough yet to go out on my own even though Mocha will take the lead in the trails with encouragement.
I have my older QH that I go out with on my own...I think one of those rides should be soon....no one to bother me.
