Three hour trail ride

Sunday, October 17, 2010

I did it and I was a lot scared.
I went on a trail ride with Bella and about 20 other horses.It was a clothes pin scavenger hunt.
I only got 3 pins but I got experience on the trail both good and bad.
I did a lot better than last time I controlled her a lot better I only got poked with branches that wounded two good ones.
She jumped twice(she likes to jump sometimes )I don't at all plus I lost my stirrups twice but I DID IT and I am proud of myself for not backing out.
Next is to work out more in the arena and round pen.
I know it is me who needs the confidence and experience and I know I can do it.
What a work out. Sore in many places but happy.

    I am thinking to go horse back riding when I get down to 145 pounds! I want to do something different and have always wanted to ride but felt I was too heavy to try.

Your blog is inspiring.
Glad you have a horse that you can ride. emoticon

Keep up the great work.
