If you were to walk up to my horse trailer two days ago and open the door the very first thing(s) you would see is an Aussie Saddle, a brand spanking new western saddle I just bought within the last year, a Billy Cook western saddle, various saddle pads, a tack box, and some things I've just thrown in there to get out of the way. I've become a "Tack Horder". It's time to let go, which really means I want something but have to earn some cash to buy it, so the virtual garage sale begins.
I will be adding stuff to this as time goes on I'm sure. When sales are "pending" I'll note that and when sales are final I will be deleting the item off the page. All prices are negotiable unless noted and I prefer PayPal but may consider other payment methods.
Now the Trail Ride!! Wow what a heck of a lot of fun! S and I rode two hours of the Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail. Starting in Loveland, Ohio. This is a shared paved trail that used to be an old rail road. While it's flat and kind of boring that way - there was still a lot of things to challenge our youngsters.
As I said the trail is shared. It is shared with bicyclests, joggers, joggers with baby strollers, folks walking their dogs, folks walking their children, dogs walking their folks, roller bladers. There is a dirt path along side the trail to ride on but no real escape from horse eating dangers.
Both mares were "Up" but neither was crazy or unmanageable. This was S and Whispers second time on the bike trail so they already had an initial meeting with all the above dangers. Rosie had never seen a bicycle, let alone a baby stroller or a roller skater.

Rosie gave everything she found alarming a good hard look but nothing more and moved on when asked. We walked and trotted. Had to trot quite a bit to keep up with Whispers power walk but that was ok by me. Rosie was doing this cute, comfortable, balanced and light trot that I could ride all day long.
