On the Trail

Today I worked some energy out of Falcon in the round pen then put a saddle on him.
Then I lunged him in the arena and climbed aboard.  After a few boring rounds in the hot sun...yes it was HOT today  " ) -maybe 73 degrees or so I decided I was going to go out on the trail.  No one was around to ride with either...
 He was a little snorty on the lane and the first portion of the trail, but after that he was pretty relaxed.
I am probably crazy for riding him out on the trail alone since this is only my third time on him in 4 years.  But that is how we started back in '07, it will be ok this time around too.  We mostly walked...with a little bit of trotting.  I am not sure I like this Big Horn saddle, but maybe it just needs to be broken in.
How many times can you say whoahhhhh?  LOL...

awesome! Even brave enough to take photos and video! The trails are greening up nicely. Good job just getting out there. I did so many short rides, a little loop, back to the arena. A little longer loop. I know you'll get there!
