Am I the first? :giggle: Yesterday we went out with one trained and experienced horse (rider in the saddle) and two youngsters (led by hand). We went into the woods on the trail and also did some urban areas (to expose the horses to road signs and traffic signs, etc...)! We rode/hiked for approx 2 hours. And yes I am aware that one of my stirrups wasn't dropped enough.

Here's us, younger horse ponied for the pic (handler took the picture).

Final saddle time of 2021. The whole story is in my journal.

Wednesday, I started with Phin. We were stuck in the ring for his rehab walk and it was apparently exhausting as he tried to mug Gina for her coffee:
Dog Vertebrate Human Mammal Dog breed

Then it was George's turn:

Today, I started with Honey:

Then I finished the day doing Phin's rehab in the ring:
Cloud Sky Road surface Wood Asphalt

Glad to see you here @phantomhorse13!

I went to Princess Place over the Holiday week… tried to talk @knightrider to come join us but since I didn’t give much notice(wasn’t sure if I could go) and she was just there she couldn’t make it…. maybe next time.

Had great weather and just an over all great time… BUT won’t go back this time of year because the way down took 12 hours…. 4 more than it should. I was hoping since it was Monday it wouldn’t be bad… wrong! Dang

But I was happy to hear that the couple that had come down with me said on the very first ride that it was worth it! whew

Rode 4 days, good rides… took it easy as my guy has a nice coat and it was pretty warm there. One pic was of an eagle we saw, another was going over I95. On NYE day we had a pretty big group. It was soooo fun.
