Kai’s first trail ride! His companion was the cute SAFE Maggie pony and volunteer rider, Kyrany. There was a busy running event taking place at the trail head with flags and banners hanging from the trees and tents, but both horses were great about it. They saw bikes, deer, lots of runners, and crossed numerous bridges. Kai had a few “Bambi on ice” startles (i.e., spooking in place) but since he was on the buckle, he gets a gold star for listening to Brittney’s seat! Super good boy taking in the busy day! Maggie was amazing, being relaxed and leading the way across some bridges that Kai was skeptical of. She would make such a good kid’s pony!
