Jen at Spokane Trail Rides
is a great guide! She is unbelievably knowledgeable about horses,
and will make sure to match you with the horse that is right for
your needs. Have little to no experience? She'll put you on one of
her big, gentle Percherons; you'll feel comfortable and totally
safe. She also has horses with more "get up and go", if that is what
you are looking for. She truly has a horse for every kind of rider.
Spokane Trail rides is located next to the James T Slavin
Conservation Area, an 800 acre wildlife preserve with endless trails
all open to horses. This is where you'll go on your trail ride. It's
not unusual to see tundra swans, several varieties of water fowl,
coyotes, deer and even moose. We've been out there in every season,
and it is always beautiful, different every time. It is a truly
special place to ride.
For a truly unforgettable experience, go in the late afternoon, so
that you are out there at sunset. It is magical. Spokane Trail Rides
is something we love to do when we have out of town guests. It's a
great way for them to experience our beautiful area, and everyone
has just RAVED about the entire experience.
Whether it's a romantic ride at sunset, a girls' day out, or a day
with your family, Jen will take great care of all of you.
Amber: I thought you
would want to see how wonderful TC (now Serenity) is doing. We ride
tons. We have done 3 hour trail rides with groups in our area. We also
have done pole bending, barrel racing and so much more with her for fun
in the neighbors arena. She loves to try new things.
impressed my family and everyone else that has come to visit with her
wonderful manners and friendly attitude. She even loves a bath after a
hot trail ride. No fear has gotten her in some trouble with jumping
fencing but we have that resolved.
Jan: Hi Jen! I
just wanted to let you know that Aza is doing well. She was sweaty and
nervous when we went to unload her. We spent some time with
her...drying her off, brushing her, walking her around the property and
she relaxed and seemed happy and curious. She is so calm...and sweet
that she has been so easy to work with. I took her for a walk down the
road and up the hill behind our house and she did so well. I took her
over to the large pasture behind the barn to meet the others.
walked her up on the hill behind the house, the wind got strong and it
started to downpour. I wondered how she would respond in that situation
while being with a new person and in a new place and she was just
wonderful. Didn't freak out or shy away or anything. (15 min. later,
the sun was out again and no wind or rain. That is Pullman weather for
you!) Couple of the pics are from there. We love to ride all around up
there. We usually don' t put a new horse out with the others for several
days, but because of how easy she is, put her in the front pasture with
one of the mules that is as low key as you can imagine. They are just
fine together and that is where we will keep her. No problems at all. Aza
is the dominant of the two as she will go to Bitsy's food and eat and
Bitsy will move to the other bucket. That is it for action between the
first, Aza was a little nervous when we would go to touch her, but I
have been working with that and she is getting used to me more. I don't
work outside the home, so I am out there during the day off and on. The
pasture where we have her is about 20 yards from our front door. Very
easy to get to them and fun to watch from inside the house too!
I got the
curb and nose band ordered. And we will get a hold of our farrier and
get her feet done. We'll wait a week like you said and then worm her.
great weekend. Thanks for everything. It was great to work with you.
