Talking Swimming with my horse

Was super hot the other day after riding lessons, so we stopped off at Horse Lake (yes, actual name of the lake!) and took a dip.

super hot in Caribou? What, like 75 degrees F? Just kidding.

Was your fellow always so willing to go in or did you have to work on that with him?

It's been close to 80F in the daytime here, finally getting some summer. In fact I had a 2 day show this weekend and someone said it was 80 yesterday (it felt like it). Today was better, probably around 77C, which was good, had to work today (english day). Took about 5 minutes for him actually swim, he kept wanting to turn into this area in the lake that looks like there was a bunch of reeds. Harder than it looks, because I am trying not to hang onto to his face, just to a rope around his neck, then he wants to turn, so I have to steer him away. My hubby's horse went into the water up to his belly and wouldn't go further, maybe next time.

I'm jealous. I love swimming on horses. Abby has this huge aversion to bareback, so I haven't gone in that far on her as I have had a saddle on. Deep enough for my stirrups to be underwater though. Ha.

This area was at boat launch, so it gets deep pretty quickly, then there's a drop off ledge. I could feel his hind end push off the ledge, neat feeling!

I have yet to be able to do that! Unfortunately there's hardly anywhere in the Lower Mainland where you can.
