First Trail Ride!
Walter had his first trail ride on Saturday. He hasn't had a ride on him since the show, May 13. Since then he has gotten his teeth floated, new bit, and moved barns (he's back at home).
He was absolutely wonderful, and I couldn't be more pleased. I think he really enjoyed it- he was lead horse all the way down. He went through mud and puddles, had the (big!) dogs following beside, behind and in front, and worked on woah, w/t/l. We passed two other horses, and a lot of cows, and he listened well when the dogs chased the cows and horses away haha.
I rode Wrinkles, who is 19, and hates going out. He tries to turn around the entire time, and walks slowwww. But once your turn to head home, his ears are forward and he's happy as can be! I have't ridden in a long time, so I am very sore. We rode for probably an hour, maybe longer. Did 4-5 miles maybe, or more. I don't know!
I will add pictures when I get home from work! :)
