Pleasure Riding

Last Sunday, I had the opportunity to go trail riding with three ladies from the SWVA Natural Horsemanship Club. We explored several lovely trails on private land and were out for 2 1/4 hours.

My mount for the afternoon was "Thumper," a palomino QH gelding, owned by Mickey. I'd guess that Thumper is a solid LBI. The fun thing was that his "whoa" pretty much matches his "go" so there was virtually no need to nag or coax him along.

It was lots of fun practicing trotting, a little cantering, and transitions along the trail.

Thanks ladies!
