This is how Nimo likes to show his love for me:
Once Nimo was slightly more presentable, we headed out. There weren't any other horses on the trail, but we did meet a pack of mountain bikers dressed really colorfully. Nimo is getting to be pretty good about bikes on the trails, but this group had him questioning their sanity. Apparently no one should be wearing SO MANY DIFFERENT COLORS AT ONCE!
We encountered a few hikers too, but except for one biker who did not even slow down for us until my friend made it clear she wasn't moving her horse off the trail until he did, everyone was very polite and moved off the trail so they didn't scare our horses while we went by. Nimo even tackled two of the three wooden bridges that are on the trail. He is terrified of those bridges and typically needs to follow another horse, but we've been working on it and this time after he saw his buddy go over the first bridge, he was pretty good about taking the lead on the next two.
