It was so beautiful riding with the leaves filling the air in front of us! In places they were so deep that it was almost like trotting through snow - but the sound & smell was even better!
With all the debate & discussions that occur on our local endurance riders Facebook page, I can't help but wonder what all these people did before the advent of electronic media? Where do they find the time to ride? Or are all their horses exercised on hot walkers, going round & round? No, probably just those of the "semi-pros" with more horses than they can ride.
Regardless, if you want to find out what works for your horse, the best way to do that is to ride the horse! A horse will tell you when he's fit, when he's sore, even why he's sore if your eyes are open to see & your ears open to listen & your seat able to feel. I've seen a horse or two lately who look as if their spirit was broken by owners/riders who's ego's seem to supersede the well-being of their horses & all that implies.
