Hi!
So as some of you may know, ive recently been interested in a new horse. Well its official and hes all mine <img style="max-width:100%;" src="https://www.horseforum.com/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Biggrin" class="inlineimg" />

We went on a 5 hour trail ride through the mountains today and it was both terrifying and exhilerating. Ive mentioned that im relatively scared of skittish horses and for only 50+ rides this horse made it seem like he was a seasoned trail horse. We rode through creeks, lakes, steep slopes, roads, fields and through some thick woods due to the recent hurricane blocking off some trails. I rode him in a 2 piece bit (big mistake) so he didht like when i held him back when the owner was breaking down trees, but i plan on switching him next time i ride.

i made a deal with the owner that i could board him at his place since he lives so close and no one else boards there. Hes pretty known in the local horse community and is the only licensed packer in my province so he does some pretty serious trail riding. So he gave me the oppertunity to come with when he goes as well as helping him break in some horses ( to an extent ). hes so unbelievably knowledgable and i feel like im going to learn a lot being under his wing.

Heres some pics! they may not be good quality but i wasnt able to snap any. a few are repeated from other threads but i feel like ill just throw them in for those of you who havent seen.

He's a handsome fella alright! I think it's a great idea to keep him where he is so you can keep working with the barn owner to finish him a bit. It sounds like he could still use a little work, but that he has a good mind. A lot like my Rusty! Who is coming along very well. 5 hours in the saddle sounds divine! The most I've done was 7, and surprisingly, I tolerated it quite well. These days, I barely have time to ride for an hour here and there :(

Have fun with him, ride him as much as you can, and spend a lot of time just hanging out with him too! Congratulations!

thank you! ive read quite a bit of your threads and i can agree on them being a bit a like. Ive never been on a TRAIL trail ride before so it was definitely an experience.
