Dexter went on a trail ride today. It was so much fun! Thank you so much to Kathleen for planning this and to Barbara for leading the ride! Dexter was awesome, this horse is seriously cool…he is so very solid and safe. I was so tired when I got back though that I fell asleep on the couch…and I think my muscles are going to hurt tomorrow!
Dexter wasn’t a very fast walker and kept having to jog to catch up, so he had to work extra hard. He was cute though, he would decide when he felt he was getting a little too far behind and break into a jog until he caught up and fall back to a walk again. He was pretty much on the buckle the entire ride and it was just a very relaxing, easy ride with mostly walking and a little trotting and cantering. The trails were wonderful — I am going to go back soon!
Barbara commented, “The joke is he totally didn’t care he was falling back. He’d just look up and go “huh, better catch up” and then casually rejoin the rest of the group. My mare is like that too, but she likes it more when she can SLOW down and join the group behind her. I bet Dexter would be cool with that too.”
