After a week with little actual riding Mara was ready for a gallop, so Jay and I let her have some free time to dash around the outdoor arena at the start of our Saturday visit.
After a slow start, Mara B really embraced her opportunity to gallop freely. Mara got quite warm so we saddled her up for a cool down ride. Jay was today’s photographer, enjoy his talents.
We observed a bit of early fall color, the grapes and fuzzy soybeans on our stroll together.
It was satisfying to watch Mara B trot and gallop and to enjoy the back trail and colors.
