I went on a trail ride today, SUPER fun, just me and my friend Andrea up at the Les Hilde trails in Hamilton. Once again someone told me I needed to get a bigger horse, I am killing Dedee.
Are ride today was five hours, its a weekly thing, my horse is ridden everyday but mondays and wednesdays. We walk, trot and canter, and go through a lot of streams. My horse is always ready to go. Why are trail riders obsessed with tall/big horses?
My hobby jumper/trail horse is 14.1hh registered quarter horse.
She is 11, and in regular work.
I am 5'3", 115lb clothed, I ride english and can balance myself (do not rely on my horse and jerk her around)
She has never callosped with me, or stumbled etc. She likes to go fast on the trails.
Lots of pics from today
Dedee is my darling, I got her 8 yrs ago on my 12th birthday, can anyone see any signs in my availble pictures that she is uncomfortable carrying me?
Also just wanted to share some pictures of Beautiful Western WA!
