Training Trail Ride

I went for a great trail ride this evening with a couple friends of mine. It was a great ride. I used it for "schooling" Varro; we worked mainly on transitioning between a free walk and a collected walk. He really wanted to break into a trot. He finally got it and then I started adding in a few trot transitions too. The last part of the ride there was a "Horse eating Goat" in one of the yards we tried to pass. Of course none of the horses wanted to go first by that monster. Since we had already had a wonderful positive ride, we decided to double back and "Baja" home. All in all it was a great ride. I think tomorrow will be some arena work.
