The field trip went pretty well!
. They sent help with me to corral the youngin's. The help was a youngin too...straight out of college, so she wasn't a huge help, but not bad. When we split the group up, it was even better, more manageable. Can you imagine 25 eight year olds loose in the woods???? Hahaha they had fun, I was still standing in the end with energy to spare, so I guess it was OK.
Mom and I went tot the local and last fair of the season last night to gorge ourselves with junk!(see I did have energy!). Had to have a funnel cake. They make me sick in the end from being all fried and stuff....but SO worth it going down!
This morning I slept in it was cool, so I could ride later than normal. While riding I ran into the neighbor brothers. They told me I could ride on their property and that there was a old gas well road way back in to look for. So I did....
You guys....it was the BEST morning ever!! There is something about discovering a new area for the first time. You senses are up and the first sight of everything is breath tAking.
. We first entered a soybean field where momma and baby deer were eating. We worked out way down and found the gas well opening. It was well groomed and went far! The smell of fall is definitely in the air, and the warm sun felt good on my back. The pictures can't do the experience justice at all....like I said, it's the FEELING you get first discovering a new haunt, being on horse back, and the autumn air that made the experience so very glorious! The entire time I rode I was so thankful for where I sat!
When I came out of the woods and back into the hayfield, in the distance munched a big old Belgium and a dog....loose. I sucked in my breathe afraid they would see us. If they did....what would happen???? We got halfway tot the dirt road (my exit to safety) and he spotted me and nickered. I literately said, OH SH*T! I don't know if I qued Jay or if he knew my tone....but he took off into a canter across the field!!!! I wanted to get out of there. My fear....the big Belgium would come barreling towards us! Yikes!!
I slowed to a trot, and looked from around an island of trees that seperated us.....he was back to snacking!
phew! We were safe.....but my legs still were quivering like jello!!
The rest of the ride home was calm. I even dropped my stirrups most of the way. Stopped the quivering! I need to gain strength back in the inner thighs! Felt good, not as fatigued as last time.
So....that is my story. I've since taken a nap...and it's time to go do,it all over again!!
. Oh, the best part! Jay rode fenominally Oh, and when we got back to the barn, he didn't favor that right front!!! That's huge....the supplements appear to be working!! Yeah!
TJ, DH could mean dear husband, dumb husband or sometimes.......d**k h**d...depending on the situation!
how's the smoking going?
Hunter nice job! That shows you're ready for him to be gone!
Now I need to catch up on posts!
Have a good night all!
