Lots of snow dominated today’s horse time! Mara B practiced being tied and waiting patiently for me before our arena ride. Then Jay and I walked her through some deep snow on the return to… More
Mara and I tried to ride out this afternoon but conditions forced us to spend the majority of our time together in the indoor arena. Despite sunshine and no wind the very crunchy deep snow and icy footing was not comfortable for us. We stayed close to the Barn area for a short attempt to ride “out” but then returned to the indoor to trot circles. We do want to ride safely.
Mara and her paddock pals had frozen manes and tails this morning after yesterday’s freezing rain. So Mara B was delighted to come into the Barn with me for food, grooming and connection time and I was pleased to get back in the saddle. A cold icy day with warm bonding time for us.
So fun to meet up with Mara B yesterday! We all enjoyed saying hello to Julie’s adorable new pup too. However a winter weather advisory for very icy road conditions kept me from actually visiting Mara B today ☹️ Hopefully she found some space in the shelter to stay out of the wet wintry mix.
Mara is starting to watch for our return while Jay and I are on a long endurance ride back . Looking forward to our sweet reunion!
Sharing simple pleasures of the day with you. Mara was with Maddi and I ran into cute Molly on the trail today. A few of the simple pleasures we enjoyed seeing were sea birds, sailboats, sandcastles, waves and colorful sun umbrellas. ☀️
Maddi tells me that Mara B is really shedding out at home. My day was for reading and relaxing, and I’m sharing my book titles with you.
Sharing a favorite Instagram post and a sweet glance from Ms Mara with you this Valentine’s Day. We love our Mara Moments followers 💛 please be our valentine.
Not sure if Mara B ventured out to far from the round bale today. However we had great hiking adventures here, seeing fishermen, sun worshipers and rolling waves. We’re enjoying the sea spray and Mara is enjoying her time off.
Sun, sand and sea for me today while Mara B enjoys Maddi and our paddock friends at home. Mara gets to try some new connections while I stride along the salty sea with Joe and Jay this week. A change of routine and rituals for both of us.
Just by chance, Mara B and I were tacking up and riding at the same time as Aubrey and her horse Chance! So today’s horse time spanned the generations, highlighting the ageless fun for gals and their horses. It was a treat for us.
