Hello Dear Humans! I have had a week off from my usual occupation of dressage. Ma Leueen has been taking me out on the forest trails and we have had a grand time. We walk out the back through the paddocks and through some woods. When we make a turn to the right after the pine forest I know we are going on one of my favorite trials. Here is a photo just after we make the turn.
We go along this trail and it turns and gets much smaller. Ma Leueen and barn manager Carl call it the “goat trail”. I have never seen a goat on this trail. I know goats and I have never seen one. “Why do you call it a goat trail when there are no goats?” I asked Ma Leueen. “It’s because it is narrow and in places the hill goes up on one side of the trail and down on the other. So it is the kind of trail that goats are good at.” she told me. Well I must have some goat capabilities then. HaHa! Here is a video of me going along the Goat Trail.
After we came to the end of the goat trail we made our way out to one of the main trails and then turned onto a trail that is not much used so I had to watch where I was going. It was mostly downhill. Then we went on another trail that was mostly uphill. To be honest I think on these trail rides Ma Leueen has it easy and I am doing most of the work. But that’s OK. Here is a photo of one of the last trails we went on.
Ma Leueen says this trail reminds her of a Kath Edrill. I have never seen a Kath Edrill but Ma Leueen says it is a very big place where people go to sing and meditate and pray and stuff like that. Hmm… well that’s nice.
So that has been my week. Apparently next week we are back to work with Coach Belinda. I’m ready for it.
Till next time Dear Humans.
