No big deal. Pick a good spot to cross and go for it. Do watch out for boggy areas.

^^ Okay, now I'm really jealous. :p'''''

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Well. . .did you cross that creek? How did it go?

Water crossings are tons of fun! Rocky, sandy, deep, or shallow, we go for it!!! Of course, we are careful and pay attention, but our horses are used to it.

I CROSSED HIM!
I was so pleased!
I didn't have to get off him. ^^

He did very well... he just sniffed the water once and crossed it making his way over.
^^ I'm so proud of him.

Did you find a good trail on the other side? Great trail horse if he'll just walk through, good for both of you>

Well If I know that I have to cross a stream, I need to think about it. See my lady has a thing about water, i'm not sure why she has but she has. When we cross we jump, first time she did that I was not ready. It is a good thing that I have ridden all my life and knew how to recover. I had only had her for about 2 month's at the time.
I only deal with brooks in the winter and spring and I limit her jumping as much as I can because of her knees. But I know that she loves jumping and so do I. So once a year I ride out the riff zone trail where we cross a stream once out, once back.
