20th Wedding Anniversary! Update Photos

I can't believe its will be 20 years next week. Its been a fantastic ride and I look forward to the next 20 years I wanted to share with you our plans since it is horse related.
My husband has made reservations at a horse bed and breakfast!
We're just spending one night, but plan on getting there early enough to get a ride in on the first day and again the next morning before we head for home.
Here is where we are going. http://www.clovercliff.com/ We reserved the Princess House. Its only about an hour and 1/2 from us. They have stables and turnouts for the horses and lots of areas to ride.
I'm so excited that I get to share the day with the two things I love the most, my husband and my horse
I'll take lots of pictures and post them when we get home.

First day riding out with a couple of draft horses following us

Cows Vida Cows!

Tony and Fras

Theres a big cut out behind me where they cut the stone for the main house of this ranch back in the 1800's

Taking a break, they had stone troughs with spring water pouring in. I have helmet hair!

This is behind the water trough. They haul this wagon out and you can stay in it overnight. Not my cup of tea!

Just a shot of the prairie

They have 7000 acres to ride we made it about 11 miles the first day and about 3 the next. I'm tired We had a great time though, hope you enjoy the photos.

OH VIDA!!!!!!! That place is stunning!

I offer you a sincere congradulations!!!! (((((hugs)))))

I am working on my 6th year and some days... wow...I hope to be in the same place you are in 14 yrs from now!

If I had confetti I would throw it in the air and let balloons and doves fly! (but that might spook the horses )

Again! Congrats!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

This was only the 2nd time we have stayed in a B&B. I have decided its the only way to go. So much nicer than a nasty old hotel. This one was full of antiques, even old quilts on the antique beds. There was one with 1909 embroydered on it I was afraid to touch it! Just a really lovely place to stay.

Happy 20th Anniversary! That in itself is a huge feat nowadays! And it looks like you realllllly enjoyed your ride. We are all jealous!
And congrats on the gallop by the way.....I am not afraid to admit I am too chicken to let my boy loose past a canter.
