Had a really fun time today taking Marla to Hidden Mesa for a 7.5 mile ride. She rode Rain and I took Gem. Gem was a great horse today, albeit a little slow going out. He picks up the pace once we turn back towards the trailer, so only half the ride I try to give him a reason to have a little pep in his step. The second half, he does that by himself. :)
Rain and Marla did very well and I tried to share some of my knowledge on better riding. It was neat to see her feel the difference that a few tweaks could make.
