I am so proud of Donner Girl. Today we took our first trip off-property trailering to Bridle Trails State Park. There I met a friend whose veteran-on-the-trails horse guided us on a relaxed and beautiful ride through fall color (and it wasn’t raining!). Donner Girl was energetic but sensible giving mud puddles a wide berth at first. She cleverly stepped over tree roots without tripping, and gained confidence walking in the squishy spots. Trailering went without incident coming and going. What a star!
