So I am so excited I could dance!
Friday night we went to a small fancy ta do for our state rep, got to hang with the Gov. too! Our table manifested with a great group of fellow Chamber Directors that we knew, but not well. So after plenty of wine and lots of laughs, I think we were the loudest group there, I asked the table if anyone rode. I'm always fishing for riding friends! And YES!!!!!! One couple, who we adore, trail rides!
The man takes several hunting trips out of state and hunts in the area all the time. Even knew where our place is which is unheard of. The best part is he NEVER takes his wife! So she is TICKLED to get out here and see the sights!
The but.... They ride mules. I've always thought of our trail horses as sturdy, healthy, surefooted, and able to go all day... Now I'm starting to worry if we'll be able to keep up! I'm sure it won't be an issue, not like we are going to tackle long rides or really tough stuff, they wouldn't leave us, etc. I'm actually excited to learn from the man, his are trained for bear, guns, and on and on. Only one of ours is "gun broke", the other two I haven't started with, can get some great tips!!!
Just curious, how are mine going to react? I've had mules and horses, only ridden one once, but they didn't care for one another. Are mine going to flip for a minuet? How many of you have gone on mixed rides, for the first time, and had/didn't have problems? I don't think two of my horses have ever seen a mule...
So EXCITED! Potential Riding Buddies!!!!
