That is great. The fact that she didn't spook after she nearly fell (which many green horses will do) speaks volumes on how much she trusts you and how well you have done. You look incredible up there Maureen. :) Keep the awesome pictures coming.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks so much
Its funny now, thinking of her fall. She stayed on her knees for a few seconds like she was really thinking about her situation. "Shall I go ahead and lay down, or stand up?" She did it all in slo-mo, when she stood up it was straight up.
We returned the same way and when we came to that spot she had to be persuaded to walk through it again.

That's awesome! I don't think you're pushing her at all - in fact, quite the opposite. As a young horse, she has a very young mind and I find young horses go sour FAST when doing boring ring work. A trail ride is the perfect opportunity to really give her a chance to enjoy being ridden. I think that should come first before a whole ton of schooling. So huge kudos, she looks fantastic and completely happy!

That is fantastic that she didn't spook, and that you both have the confidence to go out, and you wear a bitless bridle. I hope you to have so much more fun together :)

Good for you!!! I start all horses 'bitless' (rope halter)...the boy I lost actually preferred the halter to the bit, although he went in either very well, and responded to light pressure to either...anyway, there I go rambling!Lol! Good job with your girl! You both look very proud!

We made it down the road this morning, her 2nd time. She was a bit afraid to walk in the mud by the side of the road but by the time we were heading home she figured it out. She is so funny, you can see her really thinking about what she is seeing. She reminds me so much of her mom when she was younger. Vida wouldn't walk through mud when I first got her either.
There is wild gourd growing on our trails and it freaks all the horses out at least once. Its getting really big now. She never stopped moving but boy she sure gave it a good looking over as we passed by

Here is the spooky horse eating gourd:


Hmmm here is a link to a photo on the net.
