Mike pulled Ripper out for training first long lining him.
Valiant came running over to check out that new boy horse on the property. Valiant doesn't realize Ripper has already been gelded and is not a threat.
After the first trail ride the horses were taken back to the barn for the next group going out. This was the easy ride for kids. Below Anni and Hannah are taking Sally back to the barn.
Braelyn was so very proud that she got to ride Cookie all by herself for the very first time outside of the round pen.
Below is Anni and Taegan coming back from a ride. Taegan was so happy.
Braelyn took riding Cookie very serious. Even when Cookie had to go fast, she held on real tight and didn't scream.
Below is Mike on Ripper. This was the first time Ripper has been ridden with a group of horses.
Anna and Kensley had a fun ride on Jenis.
Austin enjoyed Oksana. He rode her the last time and did well with her.
The horses were put away and those going to Norris took off. Phil and Anna took the girls in a canoe and fished. They actually caught 2 little turtles (not with the fishing poles). The girls named them Pongo and Flower and played with them for a few hours before letting them go.
This evening we cooked around the campfire. Phil and Mark moved the trailer over for tomorrow and hooked it up. Sarah posted a few pictures of their trip to Iceland.
By looking at the pictures I think it is probably wet and cold but they sure look like they are having a great time.
