Trail ride: Show and Tell

Phoenix, myself and the dog (Bosley, chocolate Lab) got out for a fantastic ride today, the weather was wonderful, the horse behaved like a champion. Here are some pics, they roughly follow my ride today. Looking out to where I was going to go, the journey including some river crossings (made nice and easy thanks to summer - quite treacherous in winter!) some bush walking. Some serious hill climbing, lunch at the Whare (a hut in the middle of nowhere) and on the way home. All up it was a five hour ride. I hope you all enjoy them!

I was normal...then I got a horse.

Gorgeous!

This is fall and my home is far to the north, as far as this picture goes. I have to ride around the lake to get home. Nothing like New Zealand

Look at all that green. It looks pretty good when I'm looking out the door at white and 10*F
