We went on a trail ride today and the weather was SO perfect. We tied colored paper on the horses manes and tails (and on the dogs) just in case there were hunters around. We also had a radio attached to Nibbles, but I turned it off part way through - I wanted to enjoy the quiet, so we just relied on yelling "Riders!" every few minutes. It is private property, but you never know - my daughter found an arrowhead imbeded in a tree in the pasture a few days ago. I was SO proud of Nibbles - she' s such a trooper for being a two year old. Nothing bothers here at all and she goes wherever I point her at the gait I choose (walking only for now, because of her age) My daughter is riding her 26 year old mare. Half was through, we switched horses.
