We got 18 Inches of snow...

And decided to play in it! Chopper hasn't been ridden in about two weeks, and they were in for probably 48 hours during the snowstorm, so I figured he would feel fresh. So not! He was such a good boy, I got a little hop and one big buck of sheer playfulness. I'm very proud of him, all things considering. This was also his first real ride in the snow, and I am still beaming from it. Enjoy our pics, and please ignore my position, I wasn't really concentrating on being perfect, we were just goofing.

Warming up in the ring a bit.

Yeah I look stupid..

This one's kinda crappy, but he looks cute lol

Girth adjustments. He's a bloater.

Both of us getting distracted. He's one of those "Oh look! A bird! OMG is that a TRUCK? I need to eat that!!" and so am I.

His impression of a peanut roller.

All these are from playing in the field:

My favorite from the bunch.

And this one. Even though I'm looking down.

The field is a slight incline, so that's why I'm leaning forward.

You could get rich selling some of that stuff to the Vancouver winter Olympics.

Thanks! I love the snow, but hate the cold. He's only four, I started him myself as a two year old. He makes me so proud. :)

Looks great. You are so lucky that you were able to enjoy your snow. I had to sit at home and just watch the 15" that we got melt. I must say that I don't usually like appys but your boy is beautiful.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
