Friday Fotos: Trail riding

Bobby's mostly mental vacation has been going swimmingly. We've done two trail rides, and one bareback arena ride where we split our time walking and standing (and hopping over a cross rail because it was there). It's important to keep a base fitness on him, especially his awful hind end, and the long hill walks while strolling around on the buckle have been just the thing.

what we spent the majority of our bareback night ride doing: standing

bobby wasn't a big fan. he enjoys wide open galloping spaces

it was a great view though!

    1. I've been taking him out in his jump saddle because there's a MASSIVE hill we have to walk down to get home, and I'm a MASSIVE chicken about hills. :P
