I Did It

I took my new mare out on the trail under saddle. I have been working with her out on the trail hand walking since she had her barn sour episode. So yesterday was a beautiful day and I took her out and she was lovely. I hope that the weather holds for awhile and I can take her out more.

Of course in about two weeks she will be moving to my property and I will have to start all this over again.

Good for you and glad it was enjoyable, and good luck when you move her.Im sure her confidence is better and she will trust you there.

The grass may be greener on the other side,
but it still has to be mowed.

Nice! I'm glad that she was well-behaved, & that you guys had a good time! I hope it continues to go well, & I looove trailing on nice days. Sadly, it's been so cold these past few weeks! I can't wait till spring.

Ride more, worry less.

Great Amy, keep on putting lots of hours in the saddle and miles under her hooves. Hope the weather holds for you.

Sounds like an enjoyable ride to me. Good luck moving your mare.

Ask a mare, tell a gelding, and discuss it with a stallion.

Amy, that's fantastic!!! I can't wait for the updates!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Yay, good for you! :) Hopefully it will be easier when you've moved her, if you need to do it again.

Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.
