Gidget and I went on a frosty ride!

My friend and I took our horses out to Thornbrooke in 23 degree weather! It was frosty and tons of iced over puddles. We had to be careful as we didn't want to slice our horses legs. They did great that day. We hunted for a charlie brown christmas tree and found one! I pulled it out of the ground and we cut one down with scissors for my friend's dad :) I ended up using it for our xmas tree. It was a great day.

I was thinking the same thing. No coat and no gloves in some of the photos? Brrrr.... but great pictures! Glad you enjoyed your ride. How did you get the tree home?

Nice! It looks like you guys (ladies, haha) had fun! I wish I had access to neat trails like that.

About the coat thing (at least I've found this to be true about my part of Oregon) is that once it gets down below freezing, somehow it doesn't feel cold anymore. I've been out in dry 15*F weather just in jeans, a sweatshirt, and converse and not been cold.

Alternatively, maybe it's because Heather and I are both redheads - the fire in our bellies keeps us warm.

I was wearing two pairs of paints and two shirts. My coat was tied to the back of my saddle incase I got cold and gloves.It was a lot of fun :) It really wasnt cold.It was comfy and riding horses warm you up quickly..especially when you post cause your horse is so darn bouncy!
