Arrow's 1st Trail Ride

This was a big week for Arrow.  Not only did he go on his 1st trail ride but he was the lead horse the whole time!  He was Fabulous!  He even caught on going down hills very quickly.:-)  I wasn’t riding him though.  Chloe rode him. I rode her trusty little pony Gracie and Tyler rode Slim Shady.  It was cool that Tyler could be there. Yes, I am in the middle. I look like Tyler’s little sister. :-)  There are other pictures of the ride in the pics section.  My chiropractor said I couldn’t ride a horse for awhile but he never said anything about a pony so there you go!  I didn’t want to miss his 1st trail ride for anything.  I am so proud of him!  He is doing very well in school and I couldn’t be happier with his progress.  Fly spray is less and less of an issue.  He is getting to the point where he just looks a little uncomfortable when I 1st start spaying and then he will stand still until I finish.  It’s still a little scary. :-(  I found he is really not a fan of apples.  Just like Lake.  I gave him a slice that he slowly got through and then refused the next slice offered.  He had no problem taking his peppermint though. :-)  Hopefully I will get to see some of Arrow’s training this week.  Work has been crazy so I have not been able to go. :-(
