Trail Riding Excursion at Pandapas Pond

Yesterday, I had the best time with our natural horsemanship group. We had a wonderful, 3 hour trail ride at Pandapas Pond, part of the Jefferson National Forest.

I rode Wilbur in his Parelli Natural Hackamore, Theraflex pad, and my English saddle. We successfully did walk, trot, canter, one rein stops, side passes, and even jumped over a ditch and up a ravene. It was great fun!

One main comment about the day, a point I want to emphasize, is that the people I was riding with were incredible. We were all respectful to one another (we asked before changing gaits, stopped when needed, did some training on the trail too). It was safe, fun, and definately something I want to to again very soon!
