Oh yeah! I take my boy on walks! It was the first thing I did before actually riding him on the road.


Grooming - The fine art of brushing the dirt from one's horse and applying it to your own body.

I hate walking, so no, I can't say I've done that. If I have a horse recovering from something, I'll hand graze them around the property. I love to pony my gelding on the trails, though.

All the time. I have to! I have a palomino gelding that absolutly will not pee in his stall. I swear he would hold it for days if he had to. Thank goodness he lives outside most of the time. When he's in when the weather is bad I have take him for a walk every few hours like he's a big dog. At least he doesn't lift his leg up on anything.

Ok got some pics!! It was SO fun and I'm glad we did it!! Sandie had a lot of fun with it too, and it got my husband (who doesn't ride) involved so it was nice all around

*gasp* Can I come steal Sandie and some of your green grass? Everything here is already dead and brown D:

Sandie is still so beautiful though. I'm jealous.

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/

Dead and brown?? That's a bummer! And no you can't steal her! Lol But you can have some grass I suppose...come on up to northeast Ohio and I'll pick some for ya! Haha I'm sure that wherever you live if the grass is brown then it's got to be warmer than up here! It's already in the 50's here and it's been raining for like a WEEK (just stopped the other day)...getting sick and tired of the rain!!!

I prefer to walk my horse around places we are unfarmiluar with, so I can guide her around a hole that might be covered up by grass or that's hard to see from the saddle. Its a great way to despooke a horse, let them see that its ok by having the rider go first.
