My Paso is fun...they are an addictive breed!! And yes - smooth and smart too. I've not been out riding in almost a year. Fall is starting to settle in...I passed the February bar exam, been doing the lawyer thing since I swore in back in June. Promised myself (and my horse) a well-fitting saddle as a gift for passing the bar. I'm probably ordering one next month. Time to hit the trails some!
All we needed her to learn was to pull a small haywagon around my brother's property,...and occassionally logs and branhces. Leader, no reins. And no saddling, so we skipped the hard part. Lucky for us, she was a "sweet" mule. She'd run a mile...or trot briskly...to get an apple, if you tossed one into the air.
Ahhh...a Paso fino. Smooooth and smart. I'm jealous. "Happy trails, to you."~~R. Rogers
Good advice..amen. Goes for just about anything, eh?
I'm not smart enough for a mule - hahaha. Right now I have a Paso that I like to trail ride with. It's starting to cool off some so that riding will be nice. The horse and I have not ridden in a year - so looking forward to hitting the trails some this fall.
I think fishkeeping gets relaxing after time too - the first time you set up a tank it's pretty nerve wracking. Helps when you have good advice though!
