Talking Just have to brag a little

So this past weekend I decided to take my Tonka to a benefit. The benefit was consisting of a woman who was hurt while trying to trailer a horse. So I thought hey why not go right?? Well where the barn that I am at is about three miles away from the benefit (at an arena) so I thought I would just ride him down there.

When we first got there, Tonka was VOCAL let me tell you!! I was a little nervous because we have never trailed rode with any other horses before. When we were about to leave for the trail ride there were about 10 horses total.

Tonka never offered to bit, kick, or even lay his ears back to any other horse. Keep in mind he is only four and he was just trained in June. We walked over two bridges (which he has never done) and that was without a problem.

After about the 8 mile trail ride there was a fun run afterwards. We have been practicing barrels so I decided just to enter him in the novice barrel run. He was a little bit shy when entering the arena but we have never done that before either (gone to a show). After we went around the first barrel he knew what he was doing. I got second but I mean there were only four people entered but I was sooooo proud of him!!!
Just thought I would share
