J rode Chief, her cute Half Arab Pinto that I conditioned up for her over last summer. Her boyfriend has taken him over and done a few more LDs on him since his first last fall, and they are a great pair. He was too busy to ride though and J and I have more than an hour’s haul between us so we finally got wise to just drive to each other’s town and share each other’s 2 endurance horses that need to get ridden anyway.
Great footing, fun spaces to zoom around, natural water, perfect temperatures, a fun horse. What more do you need?
Sedona looks like she wants to give me some other finger 😉
Glad I wore orange, there were lots of hunters parked at the trail head and on the way in but we didn’t see anyone but a few hikers out on the trails.
The horses did really zooming around for about 10 miles in their heavy coats. I haven’t ridden a non Arabian in a while and Sedona is a really fun ride. She is small, handy, FAST and sure footed; she reminded me a lot of riding the Connemara ponies in Ireland, actually. Next up we see how J feels about Blaze’s wonderfully bouncy trot!
