Annabel had her first ride out in SJC on Thursday. I intended on just going for an easy going walk loop on the trail. We had to patiently encounter some new water crossings but once she got across she sped off on the trail into this rocket of a trot and was not concerned at all over the new trail. She thinks she’s a Standardbred now. Then after I cooled her off on the 1/4 track back at the barn there was a bridge set up in the western arena and she had no problem opening and closing gates for me and going over the bridge.
