I try not to ride the same trails more than a couple of times each year. Since I trailer for any ride I do. It just a matter of deciding if I'm going to haul 10 minutes away, 30 minutes away or maybe as far as two hours away. I don't think I'll run out of trails. It's just a matter of being willing to go find them.

So to answer your question. No I don't ever get tired of them, Since I rotate thru such a wide selection of trails. From Desert rides in the winter to Alpine rides in the summer

Horses can be so frustrating. Got out to the barn this morning to feed Biscuit and Jamie had already fed him. I don't think he understood not to though. He was in the small arena

I walked up to put his halter on and he backed up and walked off. Kept him moving for 1.5 hours. He would come in towards me and then turn & keep going when he saw the halter. Heck, I finally gave up. I had walked my legs off and they are so freaking wobbly. Alison tried to get his confidence and he turned away from her too. Later I was just sitting in the arena with him and finally was able to get him to eat grass out of my hands and later pet him and then got his halter around his neck.

I let him eat grass, hosed him off, tied him in the arena and went in search of a break away halter. Found one at a feed store and put it on him. Put his other halter on over it a few times, let him eat grass again and then worked on some Parelli games with him. I bought his favorite treats that I gave him when I got him to gain his trust. He was then all up in my Kool Aid. Will just have to keep working on it. It is 2 weeks til doctors appointment and I want to be able to catch the little wretch!

Not quite as scenic as PH's mountains, but had a nice ride this weekend through meadows & pine woods. And figured out how to get better colors from the camera, though this setting goes a little too far and exaggerates the color a bit.

That is a big improvement in the light depiction. Glad you are figuring it out James. That is a beautiful background and looks like alot of fun to view via horseback.

Congratulations,LeynaProof!! I actually have been on your geldings twin sister TWICE over the weekend! It will be a couple of days now before I try again, it has rained and the arena gets slippery, plus the Clydesdale tromped on my foot, so I am resting....

You all ride in some AMAZING places! I LOVE the pictures!

I can't see the pics at work due to book of faces being blocked, but I would hint to have a look over the site rules to be on the safe side. I think they state they don't want any links to the site posted. I can't remember if it applies to the pics too. I think it does. Just giving a heads up.

I'll log in on my phone to look them over.

It is ok to link to a photobucket account I think. If you put in the image files, the pics show right up. I had to go to each of these and click them. Great pics and it looks like you had a great ride, Lenya!
