Nashville has been going really well under saddle, and yesterday she went out for her first ever trail ride! She was a little unsure in the beginning but quickly settled with her friend Roscoe out front and Bowie bringing up the rear. We tried her in the lead and also in the rear of the group and she was content in all three positions. Going uphill was a little hard for her because she is out of shape, but we will be working on that over the coming weeks. She was sure-footed over logs, had no trouble crossing bridges over running water, couldn’t care less about the bicyclist who passed us, and barely gave the two Jack Russell terriers the time of day.

We will continue to get Nashville more miles out on the trails. She’s turning out to be a nice, solid-minded Quarter Horse!
