Me and Sonny on our first trail ride together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me and Sonny had our first trail ride together on Tuesday
He was perfect...he's the perfect trail mount. He acted as if he had been on those trails all of his life! He totally surprised me! No loooking around like he was nervous...just kept walking and following the horse in front of him.

And I even took the lead at one point when the other girl didn't konw which way to go....and he was fine again.

I'm soooooo proud of him!!!

That's great news, SW! Give him hugs for meeee, what a good boy!

Of course I'll give him a hug for you Poptart!!
He was such a good boy and I can't say I was calm through the whole thing. There has been alot of reports of deers, 4-wheelers, and other animals in the trails that have spooked even the bombproof lesson horses....scary hehe.

Great! Our mares are all great on the trail (they all get bored in the ring) and you can always relax and trust that a good trail horse will take care of you!

that's exactly how he was....every 10-15 minutes he'd turn his head to look at me kinda like checking to make sure I was still alright hehe.

Yeah he was such a good boy!!!!!! I was totally surprised though because usually he spooks alot at anything he's not familiar with....(cause he does it all the time in the arena) but nope...we passed chipmunks, old broken down tractors (the old kind that are all rusty and no one even wants to touch hehe), lots of birds, cars, and he was perfect!!!!
