Pretty fun ride (pics)

Some friends of mine came out the other day and wanted to possibly go riding, so I checked my horses over and called my uncle to borrow his mare, and they (Ashley and Jessi), my cousin (Tamara), and I went for a ride. Ashley is looking for a horse to buy, but doesn't know a whole lot about them, so I'm sort of helping her along and all...

We didn't go extremely far, just six miles in total, mostly walking and trotting with a little cantering every now and then. We had to be a little careful... My cousin's horse is the only one with shoes and they're getting a little loose and it's time to get him re-shod... and Buttercup is twenty-four-ish and also barefoot and gets tender if she's ridden on hard surfaces for a long time, and Gypsie and Dakota are both barefoot and I don't want to risk them getting tender when I'm transitioning them to going barefoot...

Anyway, it was Gypsie's first ride in seven months (she got winter and spring off). She did extremely well and really seemed happy to be back out... wanted to run a lot, though I've got a lot of work to build her muscle back up... She also parked out for me... granted, it was on a slope and she was tied, but she parked out! She doesn't do that often at all... I've only gotten her to park out... about twice since I've owned her...

Dakota got a little antsy, I haven't ridden him much with groups of horses, but he was manageable. I loved how he was riding, honestly... it was just 'right there' in control, but barely... just powerful, like he wanted so bad to rear and take off, but was restraining himself just for me...

Anyway, pics...

It appears that is was a beautiful day to go for a ride.

Buttercup, Gypsie and Mo are absolutely stunning. But who is the horse wearing the hat? It's adorable.

The horse wearing the hat is my boy Dakota, Gypsie's five year old son. I rode him, and didn't get any of my friends to get any pics of me and him together... lol... My camera is beginning to mess up a little and I'm a bit touchy about just who takes pics nowadays because I don't want it ruined...
