Monday Media Q: Eating under Saddle

Day 9

Here’s this week’s Monday Media Feature: “I’m wondering how you go about training your horse to eat on the trail only when you say it’s OK.

Just one more thing


Let me tell you the difference between running/blogging/riding prior to having a kid-let and after. It’s not the amount of time or energy I have.
