I found a clinic at the end of March I think I'll go to. It will be a good ice-breaker for us. I have not ridden him in at least a month. I'm hoping the rain will stop and things will dry. Going to try to start lunging over the weekend and hopefully get some riding time in. It's getting to where it is daylight long enough I think I can at least get a half hour in during the evenings and then hopefully the weekends will be clear enough I can ride. My ring is pretty wet but I think I have some areas that are dry enough to get some lunging in. Definitely could lunge him in the pasture...

On these rides, do the riders run past each other? I notice they have the riders staggered at 1-10 minute intervals for start times. Can you mosey if you want to? Or do you need to keep up the pace to a trot or a canter?

So... We did it!


We placed 39 out of 110 over all. Not bad for a 4 year old with no trail experience! We placed 5th out of 19 in my age category and then 5th out of 18 in both Novice Horse and Novice Rider. We were 12 out of 15 in the AQHA division. So for our first trail ride we ended up placing in 3 divisions! Yeah us! I missed the deadline for registration for this weekends ride but I think we are going to do the next one.

Great job! I don't think there's anything like that near me, but it would be a great experience for the young horse I'm currently working with. Your horse is adorable, and you make a nice pair. How did your husband and son like it?

Husband was out of town for work so it was only my son and he enjoyed it so much that he's bugging me to sign up for the next one!
