Update (Oct 2013): Luna had always been kind of spooky on the trails, especially when we rode out alone without other horses. But since I've been doing the trust exercises with her, now she is showing so much more confidence. I am very proud of my big ol' girl!
Update (September 2014): Luna has become the ideal trail horse. She will ride on roads with traffic, I have ridden her to carnivals and festivals full of crowds with no problems, and last summer, I even rode her through the drive-thru of a Dairy Freeze!! There's no where I can't take her.
Update (January 2015): I've taught Luna a few tricks, including smiling on command and the beginning of the Spanish Walk.
Update (July 2015) I've started to learn to ride Luna with no saddle or bridle! She's doing so well, I'm really proud of her. I'll upload pictures soon.
My Horse's Favorite Treat: Clover! And those soft pastel mints.
My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Trail ride with other horses, belly rubs, and being walked on a lead.
Pet Peeves: She hates bits, so I ride her bitless everywhere.
My Horse's motto: Trail riding? I have an App for that!
Do you give the horse his might?
Do you clothe his neck with a mane?
Do you make him leap like the locust?
His majestic snorting is terrifying.
He paws in the valley and exults in his strength;
he goes out to meet the weapons.
He laughs at fear and is not dismayed;
he does not turn back from the sword.
