Awesome ride!! I brought Gem and Rain (Kyle rode Rain). We really moved out and I felt Gem offer the most amazing trot. He tends to trot with short strides and not much energy, but today he offered the most lovely extended trot. We were moving fast and smooth! We went 7.5 miles at Hidden Mesa. The horses were very sweaty and I felt glad that they got a good workout. Gem was the perfect trail horse today.
I think that's our 3rd ride with no bucking or sour behavior. I'm so pleased. I even galloped Gem today. First time I've galloped Gem on a trail (we've galloped in the arena).
