Trails are quite boring to write about, but I swear it was interesting, lol. It was definitely a big test for me on how brave I'm wiling to be (the trails weren't terrible and they were quite clear, but rougher than what I'm used to and there were a lot of steep hills and etc) and how much I can trust my horse. Red was perfect while I forced him to go at a ridiculously slow pace. It was definitely worth continuing on even while I tried not freaking, haha. The pasture was gorgeous and you could see our whole farm from the hill.
|Taking photos while Red finishes...um..doing his thang. Yuck. ;)|

We went back down the hill then crossed back home to the farm after one more lap around another trail. They were definitely happy to be home after a pretty tiring ride. They went through a lot of hills so they got quite a work out. Granted, being sleepy didn't keep them from trying to bolt towards the barn when GASP FOOD OHMYGOSH I SEE THE FOOD!!!!!! A quick circle around a tree made them realize, "Oh shoot, if I bolt, I have to wait longer for food. Dang."
We also crossed back into the lower pasture again for a moment and they weren't too pleased about going away from the barn, but once they went through, they didn't mind.
|love the view.|
Then we let the ponies go back home. Red and I got to wait for a moment while mom finished up the grain so we didn't have to deal with two horses eagerly trying to get feed ;)
Red also proved that he doesn't always look like a mule ;) I think this is one of my favorite pictures of us. :)
|His legs are getting soooo dark.|
Going to go out for a huge grooming session tomorrow and cleaning up our tack. Farrier should be out this week, he's late because of everything with Shalom last week. Riding as soon as I get another chance. :) Maybe tomorrow.
