Huge bummer some of you didn't get to ride and an injury Hunter! Ugh!!!
My hub in the pict is riding my daughter's new gelding, he needed a few miles and we hadn't taken him on the trails yet. His mare is recovering from a coronet fence injury, he looked funny on Cowboy! But Cowboy was AWESOME, bombproof, except every time we went through a puddle he had to get him going because he kept wanting to lay down in them! It was hilarious! He is still a "beginner" and went white the first time, I looked back laughing and yelling "give him hell! Or you're getting wet!!!" it was a blast! They were pretty hot with their thick coats, Rick was so sweaty it took forever to get him dry and cool when we got home. I am still so sore, they fared much better than we did! I couldn't lift a saddle right now if I tried!
I have to brag on Rick a bit... He was so amazing out there! Didn't shy once, even when we went through giant puddles with "alligator" logs in them. Stayed ground tied when I dismounted for the tack check, stood when I mounted, had too many ATV's on the trail due to the holiday and didn't give a flip about them! Met one of our old buddies out there and he roared up on his dirtbike to say hi and Rick just walked over to him and sniffed it. I'm really falling in love with him!
