Antelope Ride With Amberle!


Amberle "fell in Love" with her on this ride.  What a sweet, willing, sensitive horse!  Too bad Mountain horses aren't more popular out west.  I think they would be if people only knew about their fantastic dispositions and gaits.  They are bred to be comfortable, sensible trail horses.

Lake Point--Bates Canyon Ride

Another milestone!  Longest ride yet at 10.5 miles and 1400 feet elevation change. Snow, mud, water, slippery trail,  rocks, brush, gates, hillsides,and A BIG GROUP OF OTHER HORSES. She did super and didn't appear to even get tired, but was mostly mellow and calm.  There were a couple of incidents where other horses cantered and she wanted to join in.

Bothwell Utah Ride

Longest ride yet, 6.88 miles--but on level ground, mostly soft.  She did a super job!  Laid back, controllable and didn't pay much attention to the high energy of the other horses.

Antelope Island Ride, March 11

On March 11 we took Zamba and Shrek and rode part of the Mountain View Trail.  Zamba did quite well. Didn't seem too phased by the bison we encountered.
