TODAY WAS THES BEST!

I went trail riding today at Fair Hill Park, MD and it was a blast. The trail horse I ride, Capri jumped everythingg! And she didnt even flinch at the carriages that passed every so often for their event. I know you may be like why is this kid posting about some dumb thing, but im just excited how good she actually did. I was surprised though because we only rode for two hours, we usually do three or four, and my right knee felt really weird. Maybe I just havent been riding as much so im gettin out of shape, idk?

Just because today was a horrible day doesn't mean that tomorrow can't be the best day of your life. You just have to get there.

Sounds like you had a great ride! When I used to do a lot of trail riding we would come back in super exhilerated and just want to laugh at the world. So I understand your feeling. Can't wait to do it again.

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson

Haha it was so hot I was a little bit more tired than exhilerated, but I love galloping through the woods jumping logs, its the most adrenalin rushing thing for me lol.

I think it's nice to hear about fun stuff, not just asking for help with problems. It's okay to brag!

Sounds like you had a blast!!! :)

I don't like jumping on a trail ride idk why lol I guess its because I ahve never jumped my horses before and the last trail ride I was on we were galloping up a hill and there was a tree down and I didnt have time to stop and I wasnt ready at all and he jumped it and LOl it was so funny both my feet came out of the sturrips and to this day I still have no clue how I stayed on. I think I had a angel with me that day holding me in my saddle LOL

Sounds like a great time!....I wish I new how to jump. My wife and I owned a TB mare that was trained to be a jumper, The owner/trainer said she never refused a jump. We spent the next two years training her to step over trail obstacles and not jumping on first impulse. We ended up selling her to a riding school. The schools trainer came out and brought her own jumps. We were'nt sure she remembered how.. The trainer loped her around a bit and she never clicked a hoof on a jump. The mare then stopped and looked over at our other trail ponys and us, as if to say "now see what I can do"?...... as Roy Rodgers said "When you're young and you fall off a horse you might break something, when you're my age you splatter. "
