On the Buckle...

I got to the barn the other day to find a bunch of people riding out. I was so excited and got Willow tacked up for her first ride off of the property. I was not sure what would happen but hoped for the best. All I can say is she was a wonderful girl. We rode a little more than 2.5 hours, which was the longest ride for her by far! Towards the end, she definitely was tired, but we only W/T. (mostly at a walk) No one on the ride could believe it was her first time out! She is going to be a perfect field hunter! There were dogs, cars, motorcycles, roads, new horses, and streams...and she didn't even flinch :)

This is a clip before we left.

This is a clip during our beautiful fall ride.

On another note. Lilly is now on doxy because of the wound on her upper leg. Her leg was filling with fluid and the wound was not getting better.
