Finally we got to go hit the trails today. And what a beeeeeutiful day to do it, nice n cool in the high 60's, not a bug in sight even. One of the best things was I had someone to ride in the trailer with me even. His name is Teddy, he's a 20 year old Arabian. Personally I like older men and he's way handsome and very nice n polite too. He boards at the neighbors, he and his Mom (Missy) don't have a trailer and haven't been out and about in a coupla years. So when the ride was being planned her asked if anyone had room in their trailer. Danette called us and we said "of course". So, Mom loaded me up, then we drove down the road to the boarding barn to pick up Teddy. He's like me in that while he loads no problem, he wants to back out before the butt bar, so I knew I'd like riding with him.
We went to a place called "Hinkley Reservation" it's about 20 minutes from us. Danett & Sally trailered Jesse and Levi. Levi is actually Lori's horse, but she couldn't go & Sally had to say goodbye to her 36 yr old horse three weeks ago. So, Lori offered Levi as Sally's ride so she could go, that was very nice of her. Mom took her camera and actually used it too! The using it part is actually pretty amazing I think!
That's Teddy & Missy in front of us. We took all took turns leading, at first I was in the lead on account I was the only mare. Us mares gotta lead out till we're sure the gelding we're with have brains you know!
This is a closer up of Missy & Teddy! It's nice having such a handsome trailer mate I think.
If you biggify you might be able to see the two TWH coming down the hill. They blew by us at one point causing a ruckus with the by then bitless Levi. We'd moved over off the trail for them and they didn't give one hoot about proper trail manners! Levi calmed down but, not before backing right into one of them. I'm pretty sure he was saying "don't be so rude dude"!
