Montana "Puddle Jumping" by Horseback or Guests!
Often dude ranch activities will run into some type of obstacle. Some are more serious than others.....and then some are just plain "interesting!"
At times having your horse try to jump a wet crossing rather than simply walk through the puddle can be daunting, especially to our less experienced horseback riders. There is usually another way to cross as our determined guest illustrates. She is far more comfortable being closer to the ground and in total control.
Wrangler Alex persuades one of our halflingers to proceed across this little ditch. Of course, Doc decides that jumping is the most efficient way of taking care of the situation. And....hooves stay dry, and the rider stays on! The best of both worlds....
