Je me souviens un peu de français du lycée. L'amour les photos!

What beautiful scenery! I must admit I am a bit jealous. I would love to have country like that to ride through!

I'm glad I didn't mess up on my french! It's been many years since I used it!

There is beautiful scenery in the US, but I live right in the middle. Lots of flat ground and corn fields.

Allison you insired me to share some Texas piccies! Ondine I hope you don't mind if I share my part of the world with you... Texas has some beautiful forests that we are lucky enough to be able to ride in, here are a couple of snaps the last time I took Bobbie out:

Trails 2.jpg

Photos are from my phone and so are a little blurry, sorry if they give anyone vertigo ha ha.

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

Allison - Those pics are beautiful! Any real mountains are an 11 hr haul from here. If it weren't for my family, I'd definitely move west or to the Smokies.

Let's see some more french countryside OP. Then maybe I'll sit here and

This is what it looks like in my area. Pretty flat & boring but not too many neighbors

There's this

Woah Allison ! Your photos are lovely ! Where is it ? It's a fantastic place !

Sarahver, I'm sure very happy to know your surroundings and share your ridings. The forests look beautiful and wild. On the first photo, the trail makes you feel like starting a gallop !

MHFoundation, it's true it is very flat, but there is a beauty in it (the colors are lovely, and your photos are good !). It's the ideal place for galloping ! There are identical places in France, but it not so huge !
And what does "OP" mean ?

Thanks for sharing your photos !

Here are some photos of last autumn, during a ride with Ondine (with my old camera (bad quality), if it falls down, it doesn't matter !). In front of me, it's Karval, an Iceland Pony, with Mr R., a real horseman !

It is an ideal place for a good gallop! Our neighbors have very well manicured soybean fields that are wonderful to ride across after harvest. If you have permission from enough farmers around here one can ride for miles and miles like that.

OP means Original Poster, you are the OP in this case as you started the thread.
