oh wow you only have a leadrope and halter on, Lacey is such a good girl :)
I could never do that with my horse lol fear of him taking off and not having that much control
I know what you mean! I was so scared when I first rode Lacey in just a halter, but as it turns out, she's actually way more under control the way I was riding her there than when she's actually in a bridle with 2 reins!
I have taught her a bunch of voice commands though so I feel a lot safer in the even that she were to throw caution to the wind. Haha And, it doesn't hurt that my torso/arms is/are long enough that I can grab her halter with very little effort.
It's pretty cool to be able to trust her like that, I feel really free when I know that the only reason I'm controlling her is because she's allowing me to.
awww//i love her head bob when walking..she's on a mission!
She cracks me up! She's such a serious walker, like "I'm getting us from point A to point B in the most proper way possible, boss!"
she is so adorable!! I love lacey.
Thanks! And, me too!
Yay! Lacey is just the cutest! She looks like she definitely enjoys her trails.
I took these with you in mind, my friend! Yay!
She does enjoy her trails! It took her a bit to really decide she liked them but now she's a machine on the trail. I actually clocked her the other day and her average walking speed is about 12mph. O.o

Maggie used to do this step out, head swing thing. It was sooo odd, but you could tell she loved the trails.
Lacey is such a cutie!!!
I just LOVE her head bob too. I just want to grab her neck and snuggle it while she's walking (however, I've tried and she is not amused by silly antics on her back while she is getting us somewhere, silly girl!). I think the thing with her head bob is that she's actually doing a bit of a running walk, but since no one has actually ever taken a video from the ground of her doing it, I have no way to actually tell! Haha
