Gary and Susan operate Ozark Equine, breaking young horses by showing them the world on these trails. On this day, Gary is training Crackerjack, and Denise, his owner, is riding along to watch how her youngster behaves.

Denise says: "They've helped start three 2-year-olds for me this spring, and all three were on the trails after only one day in the round pen. I really like their program."

Pausing to rest beside the bluff
The two young geldings are learning to stand still and wait until they're told it's time to go.

Crossing the creek
Zorro has had about 30 days training, but this is only Crackerjack's second day on the trail, and his third ride ever. Both days he crossed the creek without any fuss. It's deep in spots, and the water is really cold, year around, because Little Pine Creek is fed by a huge spring not far upstream.

In the woods
We really do ride over the river and through the woods around here. There are miles of trail to chose from, most with no chance of encountering a car.
