A nice ride

We did a small 5 mile loop with a local club today for Mother's Day.

The trail started through some nice meadow and then worked up to a ridge top and a big lake.

Then we descended to the valley floor for a prepared feast that left all of us stuffed including the horses.

About 20 riders and the weather was great.

MC, you have some of the most gorgeous country to ride on, everything is so green and lush. Looks like ya'll had one heck of a nice ride .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Looks like yall had a great mothers day. very pretty pictures & horses.
I love all the hills & moutains, you are very lucky to have all those fun places to ride, I live in Florida & its flat land over here lol!

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

Marecare, did you walk or W/T or W/T/C?

The ride was at the walk with very brief moments of trotting.
There were some VERY beginning riders and we work really hard to keep it safe for them and make sure that the ride is successful.
