Kirby's Big Day

We took Kirby for his first ever under saddle trail ride today. Just a short 45 minute ride to see how he'd do. And he did wonderfully. We've ponied him out on the trails a few times this summer, and Sara rode him around the pasture at home twice, so we thought we'd try the real thing.

He got to climb some really big hills:

He had to pose for the camera guy:

He even got to lead for awhile:

On one part of the trail he sure got fascinated with the stumps. He had to check out the first one real close. He bit it, spit out the chunk of wood, then snooped every other stump on the trail:

He sure seemed to enjoy his first ride:

That looks like a fun ride. When I see people having fun riding I think that maybe .....maybe I would like to have a horse......but then I have a good talk with myself and I get over it.
