Soooo far behind on posts, wow. Bad blogger! I already wrote my lesson recap from the weekend before last, but what I neglected to write about was a really fun trail ride the day before! I met up with some local(ish lol) friends at Rudolph Bennitt for a laid back ride. One of the ladies didn't have a horse to ride, so I used that as an excuse to get Cinna out - I let her ride Ruby and forced myself to ride Cinna lol. I also picked up one of the ladies who lives near me (trailerpooling FTW, no need for both of us to drive trailers up there with empty slots), so lots of driving that day!
|The lady riding Ruby was a bit obsessed - I think Ruby has added another person to her fan club lol. I was just glad she was well behaved (minus leaping over some creeks, but the lady events so at least it didn't scare her haha).
It was an otherwise laid-back ride -- mostly walking, but then one one of the wider grassy sections (I think its the carriage path) we let them trot/canter a little. Cinna pleasantly surprised me by being a complete adult about this and trotting reasonably without losing her marbles. Ruby of course was perfect - I think her rider might have answered a facetime call while trotting down the trail hahah. The day was warm so I think the horses appreciated getting sponged off back at the trailers and then hanging out at the trailers munching hay while we all socialized a bit. It was an excellent day!
