Scout's first trail ride was a resounding success! I had such a great time. A huge Thank You to Melissa and Rosie for babysitting us (and bringing your camera). And a great big Thank You to Keith Danielson from Hooper Crossing Ranch for putting such a wonderful handle on my baby.He's so mellow! We both (Scout and I) started out with some nerves, so I hiked for a while. But we spent most of our time riding, and he did so well! Very alert and forward (a case of nervous motion) but also very responsive. He rated off my seat with little help from my hands, moved off my leg, and stopped nicely. He had a fair amount of trouble staying stopped. Colt stuff. Wiggle wiggle. He just wanted to keep moving. By the end of our 4 hour ride we were both totally relaxed and enjoying every minute of the ride.
I'm looking forward to many happy rides ahead. He's going to make a spectacular trail horse.
