Trail Ride

Major and I went on a trail ride on Sunday!!  It was great, Major did great a little nervous but he did very well.  We came to a branch in the trail and the horse we were out with decided she didn’t want to go the way we wanted to go and backed up refusing to move forward, so Major took the lead and did very well, he was alert to his surroundings but he didn’t get frightened!  81 more words
