Well...it's not exactly his first..he's been trailered many times before.....but..first time with me! Weeee!!
Max and his new girlfriend Layla ^.^
Max was a little nervous while loading because the ramp was wobbly but he walked in like a champ! Then we drove a short distance to a nice trail called Paine Open Space. It was a lovely little area with a good mix of wide and narrow forest trails that eventually led out to a huge field.
We passed four beautiful ponds.
Max enjoying the scenery.
When we got to the field we trotted and cantered some circles and serpentines. Max was feeling good so I opened him up and let him run down one side of the open field. I was a little nervous at first because I wasn't sure if he'd just forget I was up there, but with the lightest touch he came back to me and we turned around and trotted back to C and Layla who was happily munching on grass.
My trust and confidence in Max really took some big steps today, and I like to think it was the same for him. Hopefully there'll be many more of these trips to come!!
C was so kind and took this video of us cantering around her.
Lots of hugs, carrots, apples, and grass after ^.^
