Looks like almost everyones been finally having decent weather and getting some nice rides in! YAY! Roux, that's great that he's doing better! Maybe all he needed was a nice trail buddy to get his confidence up :) Hope you get to keep riding with Gus! Your guys selfies are so cute, looks like you had a blast! I need to find someone to ride with. I'm glad I started just going out alone....otherwise we'd still be stuck doing ringwork all the time and a trail ride every couple months...but it does get lonely at times :( Someone come visit DC and ride with me? You can go do silly touristy things and see the capitol!
We had a great ride! After having 3 days of non stop rain, then winds 20-30mph, we finally had a beautiful day today. Poor horse is slowly shedding out so I mostly walked. Decided to explore some and try and learn a new trail, that was fun! We saw a few families of deer, OMG the babies were sooooooooooooooo cute! I should of got a picture :( Towards the end we came to a VERY scary bridge! It scared the **** out of him ;) Literally! LOL! It was a metal and wood bridge, so very noisy with a pretty loud stream under it. We walk up to it and he stops, stares...poops....I nudge him on and he slowllllly goes on. It was soooo loud! I could feel him tensing up but he made it across, whew! I think it it was much longer he wouldn't of been able to handle it lol! I'm sure he'll be fine with it next time since he didn't die on it today. First time I've ever seen him be so nervous about a bridge though. As soon as we were over it he found grass asap and had to munch haha. I was nice and let him have some grass in the big field, we have NO grass in his paddock, just a mud/dirt pit. While we were walking home, we had to go through a giant puddle...of course he decides to play in it...then I felt him start to go down and I was like OH NO YOU don't! Lol I kicked him on so fast! The dork was about to lay down in a freaking PUDDLE! Only my horse. <3 him.
So according to my gps....we did 9.5 miles....I'm pretty sure that's not right though because it shows that we went off on another trail? Not sure what happened...I'm going to say we did about 6.5 miles. Like the area off to the right, with the 6...I'm quite certain we did not go there lol! We never crossed the road to go over there...So weird.
So 6.5 miles, 66.51 for the year! I tried to ride a little farther today to make up for not riding all weekend :( Ugh I need to get him shed out! I think I'm going to try using a ferminator from work on him.....theyre amazing on dogs.
