Pulling wife’s 5k horse around and the family out on a beautiful day priceless

Right on Jimmy,, love the pics. That little girl is going to be quite the hand in a few years,, well done..

And yes I think we all can't wait to get off the couch and get at it outside. I have no choice right now as I am at work for 2 weeks but have a big list for my days off all summer so I am looking forward to a busy summer.

Awesome pics! Pardon my nievety but why pull the horse lol? Was she unable to ride it so you're "walking" it like a dog on a leash or is it being stubborn? I don't own horses (sadly - yet) so I ask dumb questions. Sorry!

Its not a dumb question.  That horse I am ponying is 5 years old and has a pile of training on it and has been ridden lots.  Remus has lots of sprit but with that comes evasion and just being a young horse he likes to do what he wants sometimes. 

What ponying dose is teach a horse that it is not the boss and I want to pack him this fall elk hunting.  I will take him out like this a few more times with a saddle on before going to the pack boxes he can carry the rain jackets for now.  Even if a horse is not going to be packed having the pack boxes on teachs a horse space as in not ramming your nee in a tree.
 
I practice natural horseman ship as much as possible

Very neat! And informative, thank you for explaining that to me :) good luck this fall on your Elk hunt. I think its wonderful to see couples hunt together! "Couples who hunt together stay together"

And, I like the concept you're practicing and natural horsemanship sounds like the best way to go. Thanks again Jimmy808, those are great pics!
