What's your favourite thing to do with your equine friend?

Hey, I've been reading through quite a few of these posts and I've come to realize that we have a multitude of increadibly talented and a wide variety of diferent styles of riders and horses. So here is the question, what is you FAVOURITE thing to do with you horse?

Mine is follow up :) I love running around trees, jumping over fences and having Nikki just a step behind me... like a game of tag.

I think my favorite thing (though it can get incredibly frustrating at times), is working cattle. The talent, heart, and strength required for a horse to be a good ranch horse is the most amazing thing.

A close second to that would be training and seeing that lightbulb moment when a young horse finally understands what you are asking of them.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Riding wise I love to go for a good gallop, work some cows, play polo, and jump out in the field or on trails.

Otherwise I just love going out into the pasture, plopping down with a book, and spending time with them. It's the greatest therapy out there.

I used to do that a lot. We used to have the big round haybales and they made the best reading spots. right in the middle of all those munching horses.

The sound of horses eating is one of my favorite things ever.

Riding wise, I love to just ride. On the ground I love to watch her move. I think, and a number of other people have told me this too, that Razz is a gorgeous mover and I get easily mesmerized by her movements and gaits.

I love doing that too. I don't read, just listen to the munching and enjoy their company.
I also enjoy a good gallop and when Vida is in her best form in gait. She's flying but I could drink from a glass she is so smooth.
