So much more controlled. I like the looks of this better. Gorgeous gelding (?)

Great pics again NuzzMuzz.

I have never seen a trail class before... I am assuming that they have to follow a certain pattern through the poles and around the flowers? Again super pics!!

Well, you'd never see me going out on a trail ride dressed as fancy as those gals. lol!

I'd love to try doing a trail class one day, if only for fun!

Stephanie - That's exactly it. They do a pattern around the poles, sometimes backing around a corner into a tight spot, and they can't touch any of the poles.

So, what has all this inspired you to try with Bombay, Lostine, and Gabbrielle?

Nuzzling Muzzles said...

Leah - Nothing really. I'm in no position to be setting goals at the moment, because this vacation is the last little bit of free time I will have for a very long time... at least until I can get set up in a new line of work. I will be amazed if I even get to go on any trail rides this year for as long as I have this job. I still don't even have Gabbrielle 10-days under saddle, so getting her going is still my primary concern. Things are so busy and out of control at the office that I just don't have a life anymore. I don't think I would ever show my horses, because right now all I want is less stress, and showing is very stressful.

Ya know, NuzMuz, if I could have made it to to Scottsdale I had decided I was going to rent a trailhorse for a sunset ride up at Cave Creek. I would have wanted you to join me.

What you really need is a relaxing, stress-free ride out on some trails....followed by a long soak in a hot tub with a margarita. We'll have to do that sometime, my friend.

Lisa - That sounds awesome! Maybe we can still do that some time in the future.
