Trail Riding

Yesterday I took Jessie over and picked up Char so we could ride at Susan's.  It was so hot we decided to wait till evening so we rode about 6 and it was still hot so we were thinking probly just a short ride, but as we walked out of her yard, a little breeze came up that was quiet pleasant and so we rode for an hour and a half.

It is so pretty over there, the view is so different from at home.  Much more cropland, but then we ride where we can see the valley and its so pretty.

And riding in the summer fallow means a lot less bugs, which is a nice break for the horses.  There is a nice dirt road there we ride down but on the sides is crop and oats growing wild, which Jessie had to have a bite of every time I wasnt paying attention.  Somehow they know when I am not watching.  I let her have some as long as she stays on the road and doesn't stop.

But they were sweaty when we got back so we hosed them off which they enjoyed and then we let them graze till dry which they all seemed to appreciate.  It was a good day and we are hoping to do it again later this week again if the weather is no too much hotter.

Oh my goodness, I can't even imagine being able to trail ride with views like that. My horse wouldn't know what to think!

Hi Crystal, love the shots from the saddle view. Your Sunday Stills are great, a lady is taking it over.... I'm so glad, love doing the SS.

Nice view! What state do you live in? I just went riding with a friend the other night, but we waited until 8:30 to even saddle up, it was so hot! We rode until about 10:30 and it was really dark when we got back. The moon was gorgeous though. Hopefully we do that again some time this week. The heat has been brutal. Where do I find the Sunday Stills listed? I'd love to get involved in it, too.
