Team 82 - Bugsy



Hi, I'm Cyd, and this is Bugsy. Bugsy only had his very first trail ride January 1st, 2014, which was when our photo was taken. He is a four year old Arabian gelding. We love our local trails on the Mendocino Coast, CA. For more of his adventures and pictures visit www.bugsygrowsup.blogspot.com. We hope to ride endurance when we have the training and conditioning for such things, in the meantime just happy to be out learning new things :) Happy trails!

    Bugsy's very first *real* trail ride, and he was mostly amazing. Some good hills for a first try, and only a couple little tantrums that were nothing to worry about, just baby horse behaviors.

    Bugsy's first solo adventure on the trails, and we introduced trotting :) So impressed with his brain for a 4yo arab! And already so smooth, and moving off my leg forwards & laterally, on a loose rein the whole way except for one big spook - horse-eating deer jumped out on the trail right behind us lol

    A certain Bugsy pony felt that participating today was optional so we bailed on our planned trail ride and practiced manners instead. A day to remind me that my awesome horse is only 4 and just starting out...

    First solo ride that he really liked the idea of cantering along the trail. Then he trampled over the top of me - one hoof to the right leg, two to the left, and one to the face. Owiee!
