Beautiful Easter Ride!
We had to stay on the roads because the trails and fields are still too much a mix of mud and ice.
Wow! My big boy has a lot more gas in the tank this year. Last year we usually trailed behind a bit, except for on a trail. Not today, he had more stride in his walk and the trot left Allie almost having to canter to keep up! Linus has a very big, ground covering trot. But it is a very, very smooth trot to ride! I used to hate the trot because the horse I rode was so bouncy and sharp. I could trot all day on Linus. He wanted to canter but for our first big trip out this year we just kept it to a walk.
It was the first big ride in the new hackamore and I'm very happy to say that it worked great. Easy control and no discomfort for Linus. Our whole tack package seems to be meshing very well!
I wasn't able to get many pictures. Linus was actively looking for trails. We scared up several flocks of Canada geese and snow geese too. The horse looked at them good and then goofy Linus picked up his pace and ears forward - I think he wanted to chase them like the calves do!
I was so proud of my horse today. I cherish the partnership we have.
Happy Easter everyone!
