Huey not cow pony material

After a recent competition, the Oregon Horse Center left the competitive trail course up so people could come school on it. Camilla decided to take Huey (and her friend Jenny brought her mare Hopie along, too). I know nothing about competitive trail events, but from what I could tell after viewing the course, it seems to me it's mostly about the horse being very slow, deliberate, and careful. Huey is none of these things. He was utterly confused about why Camilla didn't just let him jump over everything. At one point in the video he looks at me plaintively, hoping I'll rescue him and put him to work on a twenty meter circle.

What a brave boy! I got a little worried when he went backwards into that flexible bridge thing. That fact that he didn't just explode and take off after that is a testament to his lovely nature.

Oh Huey - so brave!!

I love how he looks right at you (with the camera?) wanting to be rescued. Bless his heart - what a good boy!!
