Ecovet Presents Mind Your Melon: Mountain Boarding & Tubing

This is one way to get a horse used to solo adventures.

So, I think my absolute favorite part about this video — aside from the actual act of mountain boarding behind a horse and then tubing behind a horse — is at the beginning when Emma Massingale says that this is the horse’s first solo adventure. If that doesn’t speak to the training she’s done with this horse, I don’t know what does. This horse’s first outing isn’t a casual hack on some trails around the farm. No, it’s mountain boarding (horseboarding?) in the moors and then “taking the ring up stream for a bit of fun in the river.”

And Evenos, this awesome steed, doesn’t even flinch. Looks like he has a pretty solid start!

Go Ecovet and go riding!
