apachewhitesox: Straight looks the most interesting to me!
I would like to join this thread...I have been lurking a while but this is my first time contributing:)
We've already completed couple of rides this year, for a total of about 10.47 miles (not counting our 20 minute hack yesterday, which I'm guessing amounted to maybe(?) a half mile. I apologize in advance if this post is picture heavy!
The above photos were taken on a 7 mile ride in the pouring rain! My boy was so good the entire time!
A couple days later we completed a 3.47 mile loop that we do a lot.
Thursday night we had a winter storm sweep through the area and it snowed for the first time this year! I didn't have much time before my husband headed to work but I braved the icy roads early Friday morning and managed to squeeze a 20 minute ride in. It was so beautiful! There is nothing like flying across an open field at a flat out gallop in the snow...bareback, bitless, helmetless - completely free!
We also took another short ride Friday afternoon...to the end of the road and back (about 1/4th of a mile). My friend who rides/leases a couple of my horses got this photo of us coming back (and gave me permission to share it:) Total miles (riding Thunder): About 11 miles
