Went to the park today and rode the "A" trail twice. The first loop alone, and my girl walked, trotted, and cantered up the gravel road on a loose rein. Couldn't have asked for a better ride really. She is such a different horse when she is by herself.
Met a group of people over there. Very nice bunch. They were interested in the hoof boots, so was fun to share with them. They had some nice well cared for looking horses, and a pony that was too cute! The woman in the group had some questions about endurance, and I told her if she would post up her contact info here I'd be happy to share what I know to help her to get started. ~E.G.
