If ya got the time to spare.....Jex's 6th time out alone
« on: February 08, 2018, 11:52:54 am »

It's been a while since I have been able to get him out alone. Either they want to come with me or someone does wants to ride. When we move to MO I'll be doing a lot of by myself riding. So in 2 years this is # 6. He needs consistent alone time. I've thought abhttps://youtu.be/Nb6aYrSLkqYout trailering him off to a place down the street called barrel springs or has others call it "boring springs" but they have a HUGE arena and you share the trail with hikers and joggers. He can't fight to go home then. This is literally the trail
https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/california/barrel-springs-trail 2 1/2 miles out and back. But we have created a strong bond. Now to solidify it by more alone time. I've grown into a much stronger woman horse wise.

Here is our 6th time....he was reluctant to leave and he's never been this reluctant. It's probably because of how long it's been. Funny how much I talk to him and it's not nerves.

LOL It's been a while but dying to do it again. I've come a long way from the horse woman I was. As I age I have this insatiable want of an adrenaline rush. Weird huh?

We also play with cows


Water Obstacles




Crossing bridges


and on the home stretch



This was on a Obstacle challenge, my first. Jex Never seen a cow but LOVED it!
