After finished with lessons, working horses and chores, we decided to take advantage of it and take a break from arenas and training and go for a trail ride. While at first I wasn't really up for it, Faith talked me into it and I was really glad she did. I needed some time out just enjoying the ride. I even switched from Payton to MC (Heather's TWH pony who is super cool and a blast to ride) after the trail and Faith and I had "pony wars" in the hay field. Pony wars is just a fun race Heather and I do on occasion, but finally felt Faith was a good enough rider to enjoy some silly time as well. It consists of bringing the ponies around to the bottom of a hill and having them canter up it side by side then circling and going straight down the flat part of the field at a full gallop as fast you can and see who wins. Billy is super fast and competitive and Faith won every time but once when I finally got MC to really get going. So much fun!!! And so cool to look over and see your daughter giggling and galloping full speed past you.
