The not-pretty ride — 4 Comments

  1. Oh man. I don't even like tall boots when I'm riding in the ring. I totally stick to half chaps for trail riding. I'm impressed she didn't freak out about a tree falling. That's an honest reason to spook.

  2. I love how you have solutions for all the little not-nice parts of the ride, and also that you're seeing progress on some of the training issues (like balking at the water). Sounds like not the most relaxing ride, but simultaneously like things are moving in the right direction!

  3. Blah on the crummy part, but yeah for pony drinking, not spooking at falling trees, and I see progress! The death march trudge, even at a trot, is my least favorite ride. And my horse still tricks me into thinking he must be hurt or dying or need to pee. Sigh. We love them anyway! And tall boots? Respect. I'm all about trail running shoes.
