Finally! Today I bought a little 2-horse straight load trailer. It's not the fanciest trailer, but it'll get us through the next couple months!
When I got it home I had Sage go in and out of it a few times. (He's never been in a straight load before) He did alright, but we'll keep practicing until he's super comfortable. I'm excited that this last major piece of the ride puzzle is taken care of. There's not much more to buy... and now we can trailer out and do a better variety of training rides around the region :)
Speaking of training rides...
We've been getting in as many as we can. We rode the Jones Creek Trail in Galena recently, along with my neighbor Mike and his horse Dancer.
We're also planning another big test ride in the weeks ahead. Once again it will give us a chance to get the whole trail crew together to practice everything before September.
We're really getting down to the wire now. 41 days and counting. It feels like there's still a lot to do, but I'm not stressing out (yet). I'm actually feeling pretty confident that all the pieces are falling into place.
Getting excited to get on the trail finally!
