two taller (Leland's just 14.2!) and much bigger body types,
one a Halflinger and one a Half Draft, and Leland was carrying
MUCH more weight, yet he kept up, we made no concessions
really for his size. He willingly went at or over anything I
put him to, be it hills or clompy bridges or creeks and streams.
Only sweated up under his saddle (in a nice, even pattern thank
goodness and quite a bit of saddle fitting and adjustments!) a
little bit, not his neck or flanks, even though temps were in the
mid-80's that day.

Love, love, LOVE mah boy!

Susan_GSD_mom All of the horses I trained (mostly Arabs) were show horses, but we rode trails with all of them, and they loved it. Years ago I read about a woman who rode her Arabian stallion in competitive endurance rides, not an uncommon thing. One year she did something much different--she rode all the way from Washington State up to Alaska, I forget how long it took her. When I heard about it, I decided I wanted to do the same, but life had other ideas for me. If I had been able to do it, I of course would have had my GSD along as well!

Horse people

Thought I'd share a pic with you, this is from my
last Saturday trail ride. We went to a place about
3,500 ft. elevation and after about 2 hours, stopped
for lunch. Leland took full advantage of the chance for
a rest:

There were lots of tourists from all over (Russia, China,
South Africa!) and many wanted to pet him and ask
questions. A couple of them said they'd never been
up close to a real horse before, it was neat to see them
get such a kick out of it!
