Steph and I went for a nice long ride yesterday afternoon. I was afraid it would be too hot but there was a nice breeze blowing and we completely enjoyed ourselves.
I love this trail.
I was hoping for more pictures but it is a bit difficult on horseback. Especially if you're like me and it has been at least 2 months since you have ridden and also that same 2 months that your mare has NOT been ridden. But Jones did really well. I was pleasantly surprised.
I love the view from atop a horse. Stephanie did take one picture of me. Albeit not the most flattering. Please excuse my cowgirl hat. I was trying to keep my face out of the sun. I did apply sunblock but that dang sun found it's way through anyway!
And what's up with my neck? It must have been the shadows because I don't have a football neck. I really don't! I don't normally post pictures of myself so this is rare for me. We were gone for about 3 hours. It is so nice to live where we do because we can go on trails, on the road or explore field after field. We did attempt to go down an old road that shows on a map but it is not at all a road anymore. We got a ways down it but then had to turn back because of a fallen tree. We attempted to go around it but could never get back down to the road. We ended up going through the woods which was just as much fun. I couldn't believe how well Jones did. She is only 6 yrs old and has not been ridden much in her life. She didn't spook one time and was a dream to ride. I am grateful to have her in my life.
