    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?

    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.

    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!

    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. "
