Thornbrook trail ride-pictures =D
So I went out with some friends yesterday and hit the trails for 2.5-3 hours :DEverything went super except 1.) I have chaffing on my calves from posting and cantering..Note to self : Never again will I wear jeans while riding) and 2.) Gidget is in season so she was grumpy towards one horse and I could not get close to her for pictures as we would end up farther away each time:lol::shock:

Here are a handful of pictures.
( ^ Gidget was trying to walk farther away so I shortened my rein and she was mad)
two cute ponies!...Gidget is stricking a pose :lol:

That looks like real fun!!! I am green with envy.

Gidget 04-28-2011 02:39 PM

=D thanks! I wish you could have gone! It was soo much fun other than those 2 things. Gidget went up front once we were on soft clay ground and we trotted along while the others walked which was good to see she could live with out them for a few minutes :P She also drank from almost every puddle =D

Those are GORGEOUS photos!! :D Love love love.
And that looks like an awesome trail :D

Just as a tip - if you do want to wear jeans again and you'd like to avoid the chaffing, wear a pair of cheap stockings on under your jeans - does the trick wonderfully :)
I only ride in jeans and love this discovery!! (Thanks to mother of wisdom :) )

That looks like it was a gorgeous ride!
I'm super jealous. :) I got to ride on some old logging roads like that a few years ago and it was literally the best ride ever, so beautiful and peaceful.
