First Solo Trail Ride, Bitless and *VIDEO HEAVY*

I had a great ride on Sunday and just have to share. It was my second bitless trail ride on Honey using the Rydem Bitless bridle and our first solo trail ride.

We went to Hollenbeck Canyon (east San Diego County), and took the short loop (9-10 miles I think?) which she is familiar with. She did great, taking the abandoned farm equipment, army tank things and mountain bikers all in stride. I took quite a bit of video this time too, all are on my youtube channel YouTube - lalakjw619's Channel and posted below.

The forecast had called for rain, but we lucked out and it was a day late... I guess mother nature forgot to change her clocks this weekend! Anyway, it was a sunny 80 degree day and we took full advantage of it.

I <3 my horse. It still amazes me that at this time last year I was trying to make the decision to keep her or not. I'm so glad I decided to make the investment in her, it sure has payed off!

Looks like a great area to ride, I'm about 1.5 hours away, I will have to plan something by spring.

I highly recomend it! It's an easy-moderate trail and is a lot of fun. If you need/want a guide let me know! It's very close to my place, maybe a 10 minute drive.
