I cantered on a steep bank on a horse I had only just met!
His name is Raz, and he's amazing. Apparently purebred Lipizanner, I could sit his trot, post with ease, and his canter was so lovely and smooth but HUGE (not deep, just wide)
It's been so long since I've been in the saddle, I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to go again!
Here he is, I'm grooming rockin' my brand new gift breeches! (ignore the stupid facial expression)
We rode through NZ jungle, through a strong river, through trees and meadows, hills and countryside. It was gorgeous, and I wish I had more photos to share with you!
It was a ton of fun. We actually got to RIDE instead of be nose-to-tail. We trotted, and had a nice canter too :)
Lovely Man and I are doing great, not going to go into too much detail. But let's just say that I enjoy every moment spent with him, and he continues to amaze me. He's such a wonderful person, with such humor and just tons of fun.
I've invited him and others along to a trail ride, we'll see if he accepts. Not that I force anyone into my world of horses, but figured it'd be a nice thing to extend an invite out.
