Let me just brag a moment?
I'm teaching my horse to go out on trails, and he is doing incredibly...But I was really happy today because he's come so far. When I got him he was a nervous wreck from being shown. Now, I can officially say that we are on our way to trail riding, and later down the road endurance.
I take him out to this big field down the road a lot, and to get there we have to walk on the side of the road a tiny ways. I'm very nervous about roads, because I know people are crazy and beep their horn and do some wild things to spook horses. The only reason I risk it is because it's such a short way. Anyway, I usually wait and listen for cars, then we take off and hurry along. Today though, I was actually on the road instead of beside it because it was muddy, and on top of that I didn't listen for cars. Well, suddenly I hear a car and I'm like Oh no!! I tense up and and prepare for the worst, and the car hardly slows down! Finally the car passes and my horse is like wow silly nervous human, it's just a car! He was so disinterested and didn't even break his pace a little...needless to say, I was really excited. I love my horse more every day.
Thanks for reading trail folks.
Congratulations. My horses hear gun fire all the time around my place. We were on a trail ride and I heard a gun go off not far away. I jumped 3 feet, the horse was like what? Never even flinched.
That's awesome, congrats! I trained my horse myself for trail riding too, so I understand how exciting it is when you see your horse progressing and becoming "trail safe." You and your horse keep up the great work.
What an adorable face!! congrats!
That's awesome! Wish my horse would do that...
