Trail ride in Niagara!
 
My husband and I got married a week and a half ago. We drove from Georgia, USA to Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada for our honeymoon. My favorite part of the whole trip was getting to go on a trail ride. I was only mildly excited about it until I saw the horses we were going to be riding-- they were all HUGE compared to my 15.2 horse!

Then they pulled out a draft horse. I crossed my fingers and hoped I'd get to ride him! (He's the second from the left in the picture below).https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net..._8308983_n.jpg

They asked if there were any experienced riders, and me and my husband were the only ones who had ever ridden before in our group. Sure enough, I got to ride the draft! He was an ex- carriage horse, and needed to have a crop since he didn't always listen to leg cues. I was so excited!!!! I'd always wanted to ride a draft horse! Later in the trail ride, we stopped for a photo op.

My horse's name was Caesar, and my husband's was Percy.

It was so much fun trotting around on that huge horse! I loved looking down and seeing his giant hooves. I've been bitten by the draft bug! I want one!!

awww he's so pretty! That looks like a lot of fun. I was bitten by the draft bug so I bought two.

Congratulations on the marriage! I hope you two have many, many happy and healthy years together!

The horses look terrific - I was in Niagara (ON) last summer, had a great time, but I didn't know there were trail rides...I would definitely have wanted one!
