It was another super gorgeous day around here; 70 something and sunshine. We hit the trails this afternoon with the two half arabs. Benny started out jumping at everything. I kicked him forward and after about 1/2 a mile he settled in to the ride. Once we crossed the road into the forest he totally relaxed and was happy to walk along. We incorporated some trotting as well and he felt great. Previous rides, when we've trotted up the hills, he has felt really weak behind. Today that was not the case. On our way home we encountered some "scary" cows and had a bit of a meltdown. After letting him stand and look for a minute he was totally fine and walked by with out an issue. I guess you can't ever be too careful!
