15-Mile Ride

Not being consistent for a few weeks and the a long hard jump session with the pony makes for a very slow trail ride. 15 miles may have been a little much. We made it in about 4.5 hours with some beautiful scenery, but definitely slow and steady. Brantley was actually not so sure-footed like he usually is. I wasn't pushing him to move very forward either but still, even Wendy was surprised by how much he was tripping and seeming to find every single rock he could slip on. 

Definitely will have to prepare better next time we do that. Was bit sore the next day so he had the last few days off. Played a bit in the round pen today, very very lazy. Lucky for him, this cold is kicking my ass so he got off easy. Ready to stop needing to carry a box of tissues everywhere! Hunter Pace in new territory this weekend with W & E! Can't wait.


Still no word about Equine Affaire, but I'm sure it'll take more than a week...

I wish we had access to trails like that closer to my barn!
