trail ride on new pony tomorrow!
I'm slightly nervous/excited! I'm moving the new pony from my old barn to the new one tomorrow. My boyfriend and I just adopted a 12 yr old chestnut tb named Cricket. He's very well broke and for the last few years has been used as a pony horse on the race tracks. What I don't know is if he has ever been on any trails!

I was originally trying to find someone to trailer him, but everything fell through. I did leave a message with my farrier (he offered earlier this week) but he hasn't called me back yet. So if he can't do it, my boyfriend is bringing his bike and we are going to do the 10 mile trek from one barn to the other. Fortunately most of it is a bridle/bike path, but in order to get to it I have to cross a highway which is my main worry!

Wish me luck tomorrow! If I'm not dead I'll post pictures next week of the new boy.

Good Luck :-) You should be fine...a good pony horse is worth its weight in gold. They are relaxed, will go anywhere and do anything you want.
