I am jealous just seeing your pictures and the lovely rides you have going for miles and all from home. Great pictures.
Yes, I've come to that conclusion too - but to be honest with you, when we first moved to the farm, I missed being able to ride at the ocean beaches or in Albany Harbour, or the spectacular coastal trails in general...
This was with my late (grey) Arabian mare at Cosy Corner Beach in 2008:
She was 27 then.
This was training up Sunsmart as a riding horse, in 2009, when he came off the harness track:
This is a good friend on her late magnificent OTTB in Albany Harbour:
And with a Percheron mare buddy:
At Muttonbird Beach:
So when we first got landlocked, I was going, "Waaah
, I miss the water rides!" :) These days, I am grateful to have had those experiences, and have learnt that the inland trails I can ride to from home have their own beauty - and that having my horses at home really makes up for lots of things.
NO sharpe jerks on her middle, just maybe a little jerk on her back
I really hope your trails dry out soon!
, any possibility of having just one horse who you can do all that with as a keeper while still doing rehabs? I think you deserve to have lots of fun too.
, it's planting season for us here too, a bit south of you! :) Best wishes for all your projects. Exciting stuff, I saw it on your farm thread! (which I highly recommend to all here)
, have you ridden lately or is that a past aspect of life for you?
