I rode Benny late this morning and took him on our first "trail ride." We didn't go too far today but it was nice to get out of the arena and see how Benny would handle the wide open spaces. True to his normal good pony self, he was awesome. We encountered a big trailer, a few brush piles, a large metal chicken, two horses blasting at the fence, and some cows. A little looky in a few spots but willing to keep going with just a little side step here and there. I can't wait to start taking him out more.
Then this afternoon Roz and Emi got some pasture time. They were so stoked and were blasting around the moment I let them out. I glanced down for a minute to latch the gate behind them and looked up just as Roz was wiping out! Thankfully he got up and carried on like it didn't happen and his smartpak blanket seems no worse for the wear. I took some photos while they played and then left them on their own while I tidied up the barn. I could spend hours out there!
