6.5 mile Pony - Easy

I had to go to my neighbors down the road so decided to take Ambrose since he already had boots on, today is MONK's day, but it takes forever to get him ready.  Anyway watching the fly-by video you can actually see where I turned into his driveway.  Ambrose had already had breakfast so he was ready to go.  He did very well, stood nicely while I chatted with my neighbor.  He pony's quite well these days, he does end up pulling some and wanting to go faster at the turn around towards home.  He has a nice solid 15 mph trot, he won't be able to do this under saddle and it is not a big monstrous extended trot, he will usually kind of go back and forth from a nice slow canter to the trot at this speed.  We usually keep the speed at around 12 or 13, at least that is what the quad speedo says.  The speed we go kinda depends on his demeanor, the road, uphill or down and just a general feeling of how he is feeling.

We ended up doing 6.5 miles with 430 feet of elevation gain.. Hard to tell the average speed because of our visit with the neighbor.
