Cupid was in the middle. He was being very good, so when the leader asked if we were okay trotting I said yes and Cupid continued listening and being good. There were a few tricky parts, like navigating through rocks and the trail was a little rutted in some parts. There were a few muddy patches, and the lead horse stopped at a bigger puddles so Cupid went to the front and walked through calmly. We passed a lot of hikers on the trail. We went out for about an hour before turning back. Cupid did get a little quick a few times heading home. At one point when we were in front he started trotting very fast, it took me a few seconds to slow him back down. So we went back behind one of the other horses for a bit. Cupid settled back down. Overall he was a very good boy. There were a lot of hills, plus a little bit from the nerves, he was very sweaty by the time we got back so I hosed him off.
|Pre-bath, that's all sweat!|
|His face was itchy.|
