I totally understand the pony thing, I have a Hackney pony mix.
It didn't happen actually, I've been thinking about bring it back up myself! If we plan it now I bet most everybody could make it.. Maybe for the spring time on a weekend.
Awesome! We should probably start another thread for the group trail ride, since I doubt this one would get as much traffic as a different thread in another category... I've heard Brown County State Park has some nice trails, but I've never gone trail riding anywhere in the state of Indiana, so maybe someone has some other suggestions.
This is my new horse, Gabriel! He's an Arab in his mid teens, and that's about all I know. I rescued him from a kill buyer - Gabe was heading to a slaughter house, and I came across his photo on a Facebook page. I was NOT planning on acquiring a horse this way, but he had such a sweet face and he tugged on my heartstrings in a way that the other horses on the page never did. Fortunately, several factors came together at the right time, so I decided to take the leap of faith and rescue this guy based on one photo and a someone's description of him from a five minute eval. :) He's in quarantine at a barn several hours away from me right now. I'll be bringing him home at the end of January! I drove all the way to the barn this weekend to meet him for the first time, so here are some pictures.
