Awesome day riding!!
 
What a day!! For the first time I got up the nerve to take Sam out on the wooded hilly trails bareback. I used my best friend bareback pad with breast color. LOVED IT!!

Our first ride was nearly 3 hrs and covered just shy of 6 miles. We ride in rocky hilly terrain with crevices and cliffs on either side and an altitude difference of over 120 feet valley to top ridge. The footing is mostly loose rock with smooth rock plates which can be dangerous and slick.

The second ride was just under 4 miles and relatively tame and flat since my riding buddies were ponying two minis and a 4 yr old boy.

It was a really big riding growth day. After I download my Garmin tracks I will post them in the trail forum this week.

That's great! Sounds like you've had a nice productive weekend and the both of you are better for the work you did. Isn't it just great when you can go out and just get something good done and you feel like you're on top of the world?
