Happy Trails

Today, Cody & I went on a wonderful trail ride with a friend and her TB gelding. I hand walked Cody a little way just to be sure that he was with me mentally, then mounted in a huge field. He was an angel - no oinking or swinging around when I mounted. He also stood still while I got settled. (I remounted several more times and he was great each time.)

We crossed both a creek with muddy banks and a culvert with water running under it without any issues.

We used a bridle with the Watts (PNH) sweet iron snaffle using a freestyle (loose) rein. I was happy to allow him to eat, as long as he kept moving along.

I feel safe to say that we both enjoyed ourselves. :-)
