Today was “The Trail Ride”. It is practically a holiday for my in-laws. A big group of clients, friends, family, and hell even the family doctor all get together for a trail ride across my in-laws land. It is GORGEOUS this time of year and I made sure take lots of pictures!
Shasta – My husbands fiery red mare who he bought and broke himself. She’s amazing and I’m a bit addicted.
Gippy – Yes, she actually is a quarter horse, and has strong racing blood on both sides. This was my first full length ride on her, and she blew me away. So sensitive and aware of her rider. She had some behavioral issues when she was younger, and not the type you can ride the buckle with. But we only had a few discussions over the course of the ride, and seemed to really get along. Plus how cute is she?!
At the end of the ride there is a huge chili dinner around the fire, and everyone chats about life. It’s a great time! As usual, I was incredibly sore the next day (seriously it’s like 5 hours of riding), but can’t wait until next year!
