that's because the horse was doing subpar stuff when it came to trails and whatnot, and then you learn he is completely blind and to be doing that, he has to have full trust and communication with his rider. It suddenly made all that subpar stuff incredible. It was an amazing story/video.

Well, I don't know exactly how I should feel about that, lucky or cursed. That's not so different than the type of country I commonly ride in. The only thing that I've been short on the last couple of years is the groundwater as I have to ride a few miles to get to any sort of creek.

Granted, I normally don't lope my "trails" (unless I'm working cattle and have no choice)...but then again, where I ride, there are very few trails that have more than deer or cows using them (neither of which have to worry about low hanging branches). I just have to pick my way through wherever I can .

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/
