Went on a LONG Ride, Got Lots of Pics!

My cousin and I went riding Tuesday. We rode from about one o'clock until about seven-thirty. I took my five year old Tennessee Walker gelding Dakota, and she took her twenty-five year old Arabian gelding Mo.

We had a spectacular ride! We hit both the roads and the trails. We packed a picnic lunch and just took off. The horses seemed to really enjoy their ride as well. We kept it to a leisure walk with about an hour of trotting in total, though I did canter Dakota twice for a few strides.

Anyway, I took a lot of pictures and figured I could share them!

Some other horses we passed on our ride (the pony's name is Cocoa, the black is named Skeeter, and I don't know the bay paint, the donkey, or the black and white paints names)

Great pics! Looks like you guys had a great time!

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

Aw looks like you guys had a real nice ride! I wish I could go on rides like that with a horsey friend (something I don't have). :(

A ride a day keeps the worries away!
