Barik's 2nd ride of 2011. This was a short 26km ride based at Trellech, Maryland. THis ride goes on forestry tracks, byways and bridleways, this is a good training ride off the roads for the start of the season and is one I always enjoy going to every year. Barik started the ride in his usually bouncy self with a fast walk to catch up with those who were in front plus a friend who we had ridden with previously. This ride entailed riding three different loops. The final loop is the fastest as there is a long stretch along the riverside which is a great place to really let the horses have a stretch. Needless to say Baz didn't not need asking twice along this part and off in canter we flew. There is nothing better then having a good canter on safe ground with a horse you cherish!!!! The rain held off and there was only a slight drizzle at the very start which made the ride more enjoyable. Baz behaved himself impecably even with people flying past him on their horses without warning and picked is way over the rocks in place very well. He is showing such potential to be a true endurance horse with every ride we do! Next I hope to ride him at the Forest of Dean in March to do our first competitive ride together.
