Last night one of the other boarders asked if I wanted to go on a trail ride with him on Sunday. The whole reason I moved was to give my horse a new job as a trail horse; he has a few issues on trail that I really wanted to address before going out riding with the other boarders. I had the trainer out and Phoenix did great in the arena with him but I really wanted to get the trainer back out for a trail lesson. I don't want to upset the other boarder with my badly behaved horse, then they might not ask me to ride with them again.
So the question is, do I go? Or do I stay home and have the trainer out to address Phoenix's issues before taking the plunge and riding with the boarders?
Oh, the guy who wants to ride with me wants to take his blind horse out, the horse is 30 and a seasoned trail horse who is apparently incredibly calm on trail which could be good for Phoenix, but then again if my spooky horse runs into the back of hawk what kind of issues could I be creating for this poor old horse?
