Lazy Ride

It was super hot again last night, so Bridget and I ventured out to explore the trails, hoping to find some shade. Obviously I am not familiar at all with the area, so I stayed close to roads and a hydro right of way I knew looped back near the barn. My new barnmates seem super friendly, so hopefully it's only a matter of time before we find a trail buddy to show us the good routes :)
We both want to move into this farm. I couldn't really capture the view and the brand new deluxe barn at the same time, so use your imagination :)

Once again Midget was worth her weight in gold. New area, strange horses just within eyesight ahead of us in the road, some industrial style sprinklers inadvertently watering us, and even some sheep only got a snort and a look at most before marching onwards. I think she enjoyed the outing, even though a lot of it was up some fair sized hills and she's lost a lot of her conditioning this past month. She'll be happy that she gets tomorrow and the weekend off since I'm travelling home again, but then pony and rider bootcamp begins on Monday with our new trainer!
Shade!

    1. I've never had anywhere near such an easy going horse, so it still always feels like a wonderful surprise when she just settles in to things with no drama!

    1. Yep, hopped off the trailer and was like "Hey everyone...I'm tired and hungry after that long drive, mind if we catch up later?" Absolutely zero fuss about anything so far

    1. Come visit! I do feel very lucky that she's been so easy to introduce to it - I've unfortunately learned through experience not all horses can be safe trail buddies!
