Cute sign, eh? But my parents don't enforce this. Except for boots from the barn. Those are usually dirty and always come off at the door! I am at my parents for the weekend, so I thought I'd share a few pictures from their computer. Here is my mom's gelding Dusty taking a break on their recent trail ride. That is my mom's new Circle Y Flex 2 trail saddle. It's very comfortable!
My mom rode with our cousin C, and another friend. Cousin C has a black Arabian gelding, Atticus. Now, Atticus looks like a bit of a wild stallion in this picture, but he is really a great guy. Can you believe she got this little horse for $500 on Craigslist.org? He's a teenager that saw many kids through the show ring in his earlier years. My cousin is enjoying him, she says he still has a lot of spunk. He looks gorgeous and I can't wait to meet him for the first time in two weeks!
Taking a drink from the creek (see the Dustbuster's ear at the bottom?)
Tomorrow, my mom and I are riding Dusty. Right now, I'm off to watch HorseMaster (Julie Goodnight's show) on the RFD Channel (love this, I don't get it at home!) I'll be back next week with a historical post full of spots. And finally, an answer to the poll question about My Boy's name!
By the way, Julie Goodnight just had a great trail riding tip! She said to attach a luggage tag somewhere to your horse's saddle or saddle bag dee ring, with all pertinent contact information on it. This way, should you and your horse become separated on a ride and your horse were to run off on the trail system and get picked up by a good Samaritan, they would have access to contact information. Not a bad idea!
