Trail Ride (Pics)
 
I rode my mare yesterday and we went through a trail that was blocked off last year when someone tried to clear it out... I was expecting it to be blocked off still, so I was really glad to find that someone's been back there and cleared it out... I also went to my friends house and she rode with me... We went over some powerline trails... it was really fun... The pictures don't do these trails any justice, they're so much funner and steeper than what they look like...

Before we left for our ride...

The first powerline trail just a few yards away from my house.

One of the trails at ''Grandma'' Sula's.

Still on the trails at ''Grandma'' Sula's...

Nearing my great uncles' ten acres at the back of ''Grandma'' Sula's land.

Back on my greant uncles' ten acres...

An old cabin on my great uncles' land... I remember camping back here with my cousins and favorite great uncle when I was a kid.

Headed right for the trail that goes over the mountain.

Starting up the mountain...

Halfway up the trail...

Looking around before we start down...

Going down.

The open area where I sometimes let my girl canter for a bit. It looks kinda rough, but the trail is very clear cut and is fairly wide.

On top of the second powerline looking down. Looks awesome, doesn't it?

http://www.horseforum.com/members/35.../q-14-2347.jpg
A while after we get out of the trails... taking a break alongside the road on the way to my friends.

http://www.horseforum.com/members/35.../q-15-2348.jpg
After I went to my friends house and she came with us... another powerline trail that we went over.

http://www.horseforum.com/members/35.../q-16-2349.jpg
At the top of the powerline trail looking down and taking a breather. It's pretty darned steep.

http://www.horseforum.com/members/35.../q-17-2350.jpg
Taking another breather... Check out that drop-off... it gets very steep right there.

http://www.horseforum.com/members/35.../q-18-2351.jpg
Pausing before taking the plunge...

http://www.horseforum.com/members/35.../q-19-2352.jpg
Going back over the mountain backwards... I was riding, my friend decided to lead her horse.

http://www.horseforum.com/members/35.../q-20-2353.jpg
Taking a break once we got over the mountain... both the horses were very tired and sweaty...

http://www.horseforum.com/members/35.../q-21-2354.jpg
Back home... look at how sweaty she was... I'd say she got a great work-out.

And, of course, Dakota has to get in somehow... He was hanging over the fence begging to get fed too, and I couldn't resist snapping some shots of his 'feed me I'm starving' look.

He did get a few handfuls of feed, so his 'look' didn't go to waste.
