Valentines Day Rides!

Did what I love most on Valentines day, rode some ponies I was out by myself and got bored so decided to take some pictures, sorry about the size I'm too lazy to resize.

Lately I've been riding 3-4 horses a day getting ready for a college recruitment for an equestrian team this weekend, and I am S-O-R-E! Haha.


First I rode the barn giant, 17.something hands high thoroughbred who is FUN to ride, but HUGE. I felt like a giant on him!


Then I rode a nice stocky QH :) going from the thoroughbred to him was crazy, felt like I was doing the splits!



Ear shot!


"Can we go on a walk now?"


And I ended with my favorite, my Reily boy :)


They like each other!


"No more pictures!!"


I normally don't give treats... but since it was valentines day they all got a little. Even the dog, she loooves horse treats!



NOM!


Sharing



And that was my day :)

Take a ride across the badlands
Feel that freedom on your face - Breathe in all that open space
You'll understand why God made -Those fly over states

Great photos! Isnt it funny going from two different sized horses!? It always takes me a little while to adjust again, lol, but after a few minutes, I get my "sea legs" so to speak back

I am in love with Reily! Your dog is also adorable :) I also understand your pain riding many different horses, I have up to 3 that I ride on days that I work (trail rides) plus at least 1 or 2 from my barn... All are anywhere from 13 hands to 18 lol

Some nice looking horses there! I love the dog as well!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

He isn't white anymore :( took one day of snow melting to make some mud for him to roll in! But it was nice while it lasted!
