Back to Green!

Even though it was a little chilly, I had the perfect ride. It was gorgeous out! Everything was so green and alive looking! lol I hate cold weather, everything looks dead, and I can't ride as long as I would want because I'd freeze. I'm an avid trail rider, so I try to ride when I can...but this winter was so nasty. I was glad to have a good day to ride.

Here are a few pics taken from my phone. They're a bit blurry around the edges, and I was at a flat walk so they're not that great...but you can see how green everything is. I was riding with a neighbor....he's breaking a HUGE burly looking TWH for a friend....he's a sweety though.

These were taken about 3 minutes from the trail head behind my house, and Dez looks mad, but his ears tend to go back when we're in a flat/running he did NOT like the all. lol

If ya'll have any trail pics you want to share I'd love to see them!

Wow...everything there seems not only green, but has a fresh quality to it!

I just got a didgi camera this spring ( feb) so once we get on some trails I'll post a few!

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.

My cam is on its last leg. Poor thing has had it rough, I need to get a new one...though I'd rather spend $300 on tack.

It was a very nice ride...I couldn't believe how...lush everything looked. It was great.

I can't wait for the pics. =)

Great..... I love this topic!

I went a few weekends ago when I tried out my new trail horse that I am purchasing. Then I went last weekend to try out the trails where I will be boarding. It was GREAT. (I did get sunburned. Haha.)

I live in the Valley of the Appalachian mountains that cut into North Alabama so it is gorgeous country here.

One thing though....please remember to use fly/mosquito repellent for you AND you trusty mount. And don't forget the sunblock and know your poisonous plants!

I will take pictures next time I am out. We are always having trail riding events and get together's in this part of the country. :)

Sounds like you had fun, and live in a gorgeous place! I bet the trails are really pretty.
