You think YOU have deep snow?! =P

Hehehe, I've been so spoiled with the arena lately, me and Shay-la stopped at Sport Mart/Check because they were having a huge blowout sale and all winter wear was 50% off. You'd think living in Canada, we'd already have snow pants, but we've been riding our entire lives with breeches under jeans in winter! I tried my sister's snowboard pants and fell in LOVE so we each grabbed a pair for $50 and went out to Shay-las farm (EveningShadows) to ride the girls!

I absolutely adore this mare - Dove is a 13 year old Mustang/Appaloosa cross and she is like the dream heart horse. She's a big ol' klutz and not very good at anything except being the safest, comfiest, greatest horse to just have fun on! She hasn't been ridden in a couple of months (New Years Eve), and hasn't been ridden with any consistency for like a year and you can still just yank her out of the pasture and have a good romp!

Anyway, the snow is CRAZY deep, we headed down the road to a safe field, and had a blast!


Hehe, past their knees in places!


LOL, I was pointing at something

Yay, trotting!


Love this pic, my pants are so BLUE (only size that fit me)


Not sure what I'm doing LOL


Weeeee, canter!


LOL, they HATE walking in the deep snow, they love trotting and cantering


Go Dove go!


She was like "Ok, we cantered once, ENOUGH, iz fat and lazy!"


Shay-la and Eve!


Giddy up!


Yes, she stole all Zierra's pink tack and bought gloves and pants to MATCH!


Deep snow!


LMAO, I've never seen a horse lift her feet as high as Eve does


Prancy prancy!

Beautiful! I love snow pictures! That last photo is my fave I think.

Ahhh, my dreams of moving to Canada are re-ignited...

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

I'm jealous of your bright blue snow pants. And your riding in the sun. I need work on just riding my mare and getting her used to being ridden again.

Also psssshhhhttttt. That amount of snow is pathetic. Abby's normal paddock has snow above the gate.

Hehehe actually, that's the shallow part - we avoided along the tree lines where it would be up to their chests. And our gate looks like this:









LOL, they only ever have a pathway coming out of the gate, it never fails.

Much better!

When I got back from Christmas break out of town, where I'm at for school got a TON of snow. I went out to the barn to check see Abby and couldn't find her. I hiked through knee high snow to her paddock to find it completely inaccessible...then I noticed she wasn't even in it. Obviously, I've concluded that I have lost my horse. Another lady inside said they got moved to the side of the barn. When I found Abby, she nickered at me like she thought it was funny. Stupid snow. Needs to go away.

wow! I've been soaking up the sun here! It's been in the mid 70's! I think we are clear of the 20-30 degree weather finally and starting to hit the weather that feels like spring! I think it'd be loads of fun to ride in snow that deep. Though the most we've ever had was like a foot and it reached about mid shins on them.

Hehehehe, I swear, you hear a "click" when you clamber on bareback. It's like you lock into place, and there's just no way you're coming off. She's like the Cadillac of horses! I can't even remember the last time I rode her in a saddle, she's just THE ultimate bareback horse which rocks in winter!
