Swedish Mission & More Corn


Mara B was ready and waiting for me this afternoon! We lucked out and ended November with one more great day to ride outside. Due to road construction we had not been able to cross M for months, however now it’s completed and so today we rode to Swedish Mission Road as our destination. Returning to the barn we did make another loop around the cornfield as the sun and golden light were ideal.

Buck Territory 


Mara B and I rode the Dairy loop with Jennifer and Bella this afternoon. We saw the tell tale signs of deer “rutting” on trees. Google tells me that Bucks rub their antlers on small flexible trees to rub off the velvet that initially covers them. (Clearly damaging the tree). Other barn friends were also out riding the loop and we met up with them on the way back to the barn! The ride was my Halloween treat.

Dividing Our Time


Weather, sloppy mud and wind shortened our outdoor ride today.  We had much of our connection time in the indoor arena, on the ground and in the saddle. Our outdoor ride was the stretch of road right near the stable. Wet leaves and some patches of snow are covering the ground. We’re definitely feeling the change of seasons.

The colors at River Brink

Char took this great photo of us today to highlight the gorgeous autumn colors we’re enjoying at the barn this Monday in October.

After Char and SeaB and Mara and I trotted and cantered in a cut field we then headed in a different direction than usual and had a good ride “down the road” together. Thanks Char!

Dairy Loop with Char

It was a perfect day for a fall ride! Char and I were out for about two hours together and saw that the soybean fields have been cut. This photo is of the dairy farm we pass through. We both agreed that our four legged companions were awesome today!
