Went to the campus I work at today for a trail ride with the equestrian team.
Three members were running late so I got some pre-ride pictures
As people were mounting I got several pictures.
Jakari on an arabian named China
Tonya's boyfriend on Mrs. Bee. Sara the equestrian manager is in the background on the new draft Thor. It was Thor's first trail ride.

Sammy is the first horse that I started riding when I first got back into riding. He had just come out of training so I was there for a lot of his first like going from concrete to grass, crossing a road.
We rode down the road to a hay field and around the hay field.
I forgot to get a picture of Ebony and her horse as were mounting because Oreo wanted to go. So Ebony is on the paint in the previous picture.
It was a fun afternoon. We did about 4.7 miles as a group. I did about another 0.5 miles when we got back I rode over to the arena to see if the cat needed food.
Total of 5.2 miles today and 32.1 for the year. Sat is the ACTHA ride.
Oreo did well today as a precursor to Sat.'s ride. 6 strange horses and a new place. Sat will be 60+ new horses and a new place.
