Trail Ride

Last night 3 of us from the barn went for a short trail ride. Patty and I ride together all the time; this time we were joined by another experienced trail rider. We’ve been trying to learn the network of trails so we talked along the way about where various trails went to and what the landmarks are.

Almost ready to go:

Clearly I need to work on my camera settings! A number of my in motion photos turned out like this. I do like how artistic this shot is, but it wasn’t what I was going for at the time.

Hmmm, should we go further or go back?

This is how rocky it is around here. Most of the trails are nothing BUT rocks. And actually, the rocks are much worse than you can see in this photo in many places.

Headed back to the barn on a nice Summer evening.

    Sigh. I never got to be a good rider, but the time I did horseback riding, I enjoyed it very much. I go to it too late in my life. I was 37 when I started out, and at 39 I fell off one time too many, so I gave it up.
    But after seeing your photos, I do realize, I miss it. I loved the horses, just watching them, taking care of them before and after the ride was so relaxing and wonderful.
