Our trail ride in Uwharrie

Major and I took our first trail ride in Uwharrie, NC yesterday. He did a great job! It was an 8 hour ride...with lots and lots of stops. On the first half of the ride I didn't take any pics because I wasn't sure how Major would react to the sounds and flashing the camera would make...silly me. Keep in mind that most of the pics don't even have Major in them because I was the photographer..but the first two are of him. In some Majors ears are there too...hey what do you expect, I took these pics horseback. Yay!!!

thanks hun! Yes we did. I am so proud of Major. I felt like for once that I was actually driving instead of hanging on for dear life. I wish I hadn't been so silly and worrying about how Major was going to react to my picture taking, but for the first half of the ride I was sorta waiting for the explosion. But hey, I regained a lot of confidence in myself and in my horse on this ride so I have nothing to complain about

Wow, beautiful area! 8 hours? Wow and double wow! My old knees and back can't do them type rides any more especially if mountainous. Major has very kind eyes...he's a cutie!

Thank you ilovemyphillip. I have to agree with you, but then again, I am biased
Bronco Hollow: We stopped and rested a lot...that helped. Thanks for your compliments on Major....he has a kind heart to match his eyes.

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

When I was a kid, 8 hours was an 'average' weekend day ride...Lol! My horse was FIT!!! Lol! We'd pack some snacks and water bottles, and off we'd go...I'm looking foward to doing some of that now that I will be able to ride everyday again, once this move is done with!
