So, Wa and I headed quickly away and down the trails. Though, it was terribly loud, and I was praying the entire time just about, that we'd be spared the crash event of meeting in an inopportune place on any trails. Wa and I had ourselves a fair trail experience. We decided to get to the "Safe Zone"...near the entrance to the entire area is a lovely trail that has so many downed tree trunks and larger rocks. The mare walks over them easily so, but a fat thing, like this above motorized job..well, they need wide birth of soft enough foliage that they can mash it away. NOT this trail!
The first part was the best..as it was quiet!!!
I like the diverse terrains with stuff to go over and through...Wa normally does not like things touching her and close in trails with scrubby undergrowth..but, the more I think about it..that is where we need to be to avoid the all terrain vehicles...out of sight on narrow scrubby paths!
We had some water crossings today too..the video makes it looks much smaller than it was..it took the entire trail up and there was no way around it!
Then, there was this obscure path I spied on the way back, not for the faint of heart, was the dooosey of a creek it took us to. The creek lay in the bottom of a 3 foot or so, drop. It looked doable, but I decided with it being late on the ride..not to chance it today..it may be a twice done jump as I know not where the trail goes . Maybe tomorrow!
Washashe was a really good girl today and I think maybe one more day out there on the trails of Sun, then we'll get to work inside for the winter.
Lessons for Jumping and flat start in Dec. With my eventing trainer. I cancelled them due to my surprize, last minute "NO" on lesser board at the stable...but with gaining 65 clients from my husbands 21 year old barbering base of clients...I think that was the boost I needed for the go ahead to invest in Us for the future of riding! I will remake them all tomorrow. My husband is giving up barbaring now, and going into nursing.
Untill we meet again, happy trails!
