Honey got ridden today!

So I won't say too much or I'll end up writing a novel. These are pics of my NZ Standardbred mare Honey. Anywho, it was a stinking hot summers day (34Celsius) and me and my friend got stuck in earlier this morning before finding comfort in the coolness of our homes! I won't post the pics of my friend on my horses (she rode my other mare Bailey also) here as I haven't asked the permission to.

This was Honey's first ride out in the bigggg paddock. She truly enjoyed it and I let her hoon to give her muscles a good stretch... shes only been under saddle for nearly 4 months and so she has recently felt a bit muscle sore. But we're on top of that now, and she's so glad she isnt just sitting in the paddock bored out of her brains!











^^^ we were both absolutely knackered and sweating by the end! Can't wait for summer to be OVER!

Only a couple of days to go until Evo's home and I can start riding him some more too!
Thanks for looking!

Thanks RedHawk! She's a lovely mare to work with in every way! 48C?! My mate lives in Victoria (the southern part) and told me it was about that temp there too!
Then again, when winter truly hits we'll be wanting the sun again! Neverending complaining from me... but right now cooler weather sounds nice.

Looks like you both had a lovely time.The green grass and leaves on the trees makes me long for summer
Its been in the 60-70 (16-21c) range here so we have been getting lots of rides in. I keep waiting for the snow to hit again
