Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!

Hi all,

Thanksgiving weekend up here in Canada - and Felix is going great!  He spent last weekend and the early part of last week going on long trail rides.  We went out to the Pinto club ride last Sunday with Heather - it was his first time in a large group, and his first time out in his new hackamore - but he was still pretty good.  The place where the ride took place was about a 1 1/2 hr drive from the barn, and their trals were much more narrow, rocky, and hilly then he was used to but he handled it rather well. We were in a group of around 20 riders, which had him wound up for the beginning but calmed down by the end of the ride.  It was also windy out and super cold which he'd not experienced before - so all in all it was good.

On wednesday we did Copeland Forest again, as usual he was a star and he's getting very used to going in the hackamore on the trails.  We were out for about 3 hours - and it was a gorgeous ride with the beginings of fall colours.  Here is some pics from the ride :)


  1. His mane is so cute! It's good he's experiencing different things.

    You've won an award on my blog =)

  2. The fall colours are beautiful, and look at your pony's mane! What a cutie.

  3. I'm so jealous you got to ride in Copelands. My dad's farm is right across from it (on the other side of the 400) on top of a big hill that overlooks Copelands. I spent many hours trail riding in that forest when I was still living on the farm. I would go every Thanksgiving weekend too. Now that I live over 2 hours away, I really miss riding there.
