Our last official hunt of the season was yesterday, and it was a great one! Hounds were cast across the street from our new barn. It was great to be able to ride across the street. No trailering!
It was still Freedom’s turn. I knew this would be a fast hunt and he’s a blast to ride on the hunts where he’s allowed to move out. He’s also so sure footed that I never worry about galloping him on trails or down hills. He was keen but listening. There was a lot of loft in his gaits.
Freedom was in for a treat, though. After the check we were able to ride up with the huntsman. There were a couple of good runs in that last piece and when we got back to the trailers, Freedom looked like he’d just finished a race. I probably looked about the same — it’s exhausting to keep up with him.
Here are some of the photos from the day.
