i took a walk (instead of riding) for the first time where i ride. i wanted to get some pics to share. there are still some trails that we haven't explored some trails, more meet up to the same spot.
anyways, here are the nice parts of Massachusetts for you
a new trail we went on
there are lots of different pines in this area. following the new trail...
entering the sand pits- aka "the pits". there is a lot of grass there are many spots have grown in in the last few months. there is just sand here. in the fall when the grass dies, it looks very "westerny"
there are several trails through here, some are small and some are bigger like this one. obviously some nice trotting/ loping spots, which we usually walk on to save the horses energy for the "galloping path"!
this has grown in since the last time i was here a few months ago. this is about where we start cantering and we let the horses go asa fast as they want which usually turns into a gallop and the a dead run at the bottom of the hill. we end at that sandy spot in the left distance :)
still continuing on to the end hill- aka "the cantering hill". is end on a hill that is short and a perfect for cantering up). from here in out the path is grass free except some grass clumps in which my horse can never decide which side she wants to go around
oh and for any one wondering, this is no where near the ocean, all this sand is in the middle of the woods!
still getting closer, the cantering hill is near and the horses are full of energy
the cantering hill is the left open space, some of it is covered but the pine tree
