So, the other day I decided to take Soda on a long lonesome trailride. Silly me thought he was ready. Long story short, he wasn't and to prove it managed to spend the entire 1.5 hrs alternately trying to kill us both, run home in terror, or scream like a ninny. :? We made it back home in one piece and he rolled for a good 20 mins trying to make himself feel better. :lol:

I think these are in order (he went down about 3 times and rolled repeatedly).

He will. He's actually been great in the past when we trailer somewhere. Just trying to ride out from my house is a pain when we're alone due to his extreme buddy sourness. He has gotten a ton better already this year, but I guess he wasn't quite ready for that much of a trailride.

And for some reason he is completely terrified of parked vehicles next to the road.... Weird.

I love the colors in his mane. He's really handsome. At least you have the bravado to go out on your own : )

LOL, Thanks. I love his pretty natural highlights. I don't know if it's bravado though, if I don't ride alone I don't ride. That's been the story of my life for most of my riding "career".

Unfortunately when I was younger the spring b.s. was easier to deal with.... There was a point on our last ride where I was thinking to myself "if he bolts any further towards the highway, I'm jumping!" When I was young, I would let them pitch a fit where ever they felt like it and stick through it until it was done. Now I'm a little more concerned about the Hummer coming my way. :D
