Trail Ride!!

Here is the pretty boy before the ride:

Trotting around the field:

Wow, he is actually listening! See what it can do? lol

Listening ended:

Taking a walking break:


(This is his bad way)

Grrr, wish the big cement thing wasn't there :(

Pretty Boy!

The trail ride was a blast! I went with my Mom (who rode Elsa) for a birthday present for her (Hapy b-day mom!) Elsa was a pill on the trails so mom had to dismount and walk her there. She settled down though. She only did walk trot and as you can see, I did w/t/c. I was so proud of him! I only asked for a few seconds of collection during the ride. It was more about having fun than working. I had a great time! We crossed a river, jumped a log, and cantered!

Post more later...
