Trail Obsessed

B had a few days off after the show, but he was rearing to go when I finally hopped on again. This whole week has basically been trail rides getting ready for the RISPCA ride tomorrow. This will be my second week taking him and if he made it through it last time where he was in his training, I'm sure tomorrow will be amazing. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst right?

Kate and I finally made it out with the Fat Halfie. We had a good little trail ride and walk to the train tracks. Small amount of trotting because the poor old girl was shoeless, sore, and a little on the fat side. Because she was so good on our next ride with her owner, P opted to put shoes on the Buxom Blonde (nicknamed by: Ms. Kate).

L&M (Linda & Maddie: Shire/TB cross) have been dying to get out again so we planned an evening ride and luckily, Kate was available to hop on the Halfie again. We even talked Ol' Jim into taking Leo (another chub) out which was awesome! We had the best ride!

When we got to the back field AKA: The Desert, J went off on his owner and the other horses handled it fine. Well, B was good, except he tip-toed behind the girls as if he was waiting up for Leo. Not once did he try and turn around or go after him though so just getting slower? I'm okay with that.

On our way back from the back trail, L asked if we wanted to pick up the pace. Kate & I didn't even miss a beat. Because Maddie (need a new nickname for me or her if anyone has ideas) has such a large trot stride, the BBlonde had to pick up a canter right away, then B followed suite. After about 30 seconds, L&M started to canter, holy crap... Next you know the 3 of us are FLYING down the straight away, B bringing up the back. He pulled a little on the reins as if to ask if he could stretch more... So obviously I said you know what, F it, and let him go. We came up on the left of L&M and kept going a few strides after the girls slowed... He had a whole other gear I hadn't tapped into, and I can't wait to do it again. I don't think I've laughed that hard or had that much fun since the hunter pace with Lauren & Charlie.

Going out this afternoon with E (my trainer)... and she'll be riding the BBlonde. I'm stoked!

RISPCA ride with Wendy tomorrow. *fingers crossed for pictures*
