Starting in the round pen for Mara to stretch her legs and expend energy has been working well for us lately, it’s what we did today. Then we headed up to the cow pasture and found the new addition which signals big changes for our outings. Riding up and then back down from the cow pasture is good excerise for Mara and I like the views. A good ride for us, cool temps but calm winds.
We covered some new territory on today’s ride with Melodee and Spice! Fun to now be able to ride around the perimeter of cut cornfields. Did we ever scare up cawing crows! The crows were annoyed that we disturbed their lunch, we saw and heard fifty plus crows fly up as we approached. Another great ride with two great horses.
Mara and I teamed up again with Abby and Jack and headed to the river this afternoon. We had a great ride, crossed the water, saw two fly fisherman and enjoyed the lovely day. This is a more demanding ride and one I don’t do alone, so I really appreciated the outing. An energetic way to end the week.
Melodee and Spice and Mara B and I had a great ride together this afternoon, but our horses got very hot and sweaty. Because today was back to August like temps, and the horses are now getting longer thicker hair. As you see, Brutus had it all figured out, and simply enjoyed the cool cement floor. Of course finding doors in the woods was the biggest event of the ride!
