Roading on August 1, 2010 - from River Edge Farm
What a relaxed, mild morning.... Despite being on a new horse that just saw hounds for the first time last week, all went very well. Dudley is absolutely stellar, and I can't wait for cubbing to start. Cool mornings with dew covered grounds, ahhh, soon enough. Today we were out for an hour and covered 5.5 miles at a 6 mph average. We only lost one of the puppies for about 5 minutes (right next to a busy RR crossing) but he was quickly recovered.
I brought along a fellow boarder that joined us once towards the end of last season, and had a much more relaxing ride today, than she did last March. As in, performed far fewer levades, and capriole's than on her previous outing! Actually, Penny's trusty steed Bug was as perfect as perfect can be.
