I used to ride the trails around Nebraska regularly with a high school friend who had a trailer--we did everything from swim with the horses until only their heads bobbed above the water to climbing the highest buttes near Fort Robinson.
|My sure-footed steed for the ride, Preacher.|
|Some of the "fun" of young horses--you get to dismount regularly and show them how to do it.|
|My 75-year-old neighbor still rides regularly. I only hope I can say the same when I'm her age.|
Or have the girls do the training.
