ROFLMFAO, I had to snap this pic, this is why I love this freaking Arab so much. Srsly, she was a Russian Spy in a past life - a BAD one. We were mounting up outside the arena to go for a ride and this is all we could see. You could almost SENSE that wary frown of "excuse me? Leaving without me? How dare you."
Anyway, it was absolutely GORGEOUS yesterday, only -14 celsius and -20 with the wind, but in the trails you barely get any of it. The girls were fantastic, although at one point there was some wild animal in thick brush and as we approached it exploded with a massive commotion (Shay-la thinks it was an owl) so both girls spun as hard as they could and jumped into the trees. So I'm nursing a very sore back today! I managed to stick with her, but she could have put a top cutting horse to shame with that move!
Anyway, enjoy the pics!
Shay-la on Justus with Tika crossing the barren tundra to the trails (also known as the Polo Field in summer!)
Shay-la, Justus and Tika again
Entering the "secret" trails, LOL
Yay first trail ride of the year!
It's just as beautiful as in summer!
Checking out the brand spanking new signs - this trail is called The Bridlepath and it's a picture of a Dressage rider!
Over the hills and thru the woods!
Come on Tika!
Haha, you know the snow is deep WHEN!
Me and Jynxy!
Furry pony ears!
Catch up Tika!
