Harley heads for the hills with John

Here's Harley in his trail rig--note the missing noseband. John decided the halter under the bridle was enough, and of course, the little fleece roll just gives it a little cushion.

John rode him for almost 2 1/2 hours today, all the way up towards Mt. Agamenticus on some trails we haven't covered since last fall. Harley even braved the little bridge, with some subtle urging and a couple of circles. He even had a gander underneath, expecting trolls, no doubt!

Home from the forest
And once he got home, the lessons continued. John has been working towards training Harley to hobble. This is his first time wearing them, and he got the hang of it pretty quickly. No thrashing, just a bit of confusion, and then resignation, "Oh, so I can't take big steps? O.K." They are made from nice soft cotton, big and cushy!
