My first ride in the snow

Soooooo I got to take Sunday out for a ride today in the snowyness! It was so much fun! I rode around our friends arena and then took her for a little walk/trot to the pond. My friend took a couple pics before she went back indoors so I thought I would share

Pose, not sure what my leg is doing so far forward :huh: , but we also put the dressage saddle on Sunday!

My fave pic

And PJ who got the day off hehe.

I'm soooo jealous! I went snowshoeing instead. Never enough time to do everything I want to do.

Your horse looked like he was having as much fun as you!

I am originally from Sydney, Australia ;) so this is rather exciting for me, alot of the snow had melted, this snow was from over a week ago but was quite safe footing, she didn't get any balls on her feet, she is barefoot and she didn't slip or put a foot wrong.

How on earth did you end up in RI from Australia?? I'm gussing you had to leave your pinto ponies at home huh? If that's your new girl, she's lovely!

Cute pictures. Thanks for sharing. What kind of horse is PJ? He looks EXACTLY like another horse I know from another horse forum, his name is Parker. Same color, same fuzzy cuteness.

I was wondering that myself wasn't sure if you were both Australian or just him. I'd come across the world for that handsome man too
Don't worry he's way to young for me, but he sure is cute! Don't tell him that, he will get conceited
