She did a fantastic job with Allie, and I could tell he really liked her. We had fun out there, tooling around in all that new snow, following the paths Ah-D created on Saturday.
I rode in my bareback pad again and absolutely loved every minute of it, as usual. We mostly walked along at a medium pace, enjoying the outdoors, chatting a bit, talking about how much we just love, love, love horses. Haleigh lives on a Shire farm, and the last horse she rode was a 17.3 hand 3-year old filly. I bet it was sooooommmme different riding 13.3 hand soon-to-be 20-year old Allie, but she enjoyed it very much, and the feeling was mutual (which doesn't always happen with Allie, believe me).
We took every winter trail open to us on our side of the road but avoided the Steep Hill. I didn't want to press our luck.
My oh my, what a fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I'm hoping like crazy to get out next weekend as well, because as of yesterday, I have a new saddle! I think even Harold will be pleased, but I will wait to reveal details until my next post as I have yet to try it out. Until then, Happy Trails ~Susan and Ah-D in Maine~
