Four of us went to Carver Park on Sunday afternoon for a fun day of riding in a beautiful park. My friend Jean took all of the photos, so she is sadly missing from the pictures. We get to see Sinclair's ears and a little of his head, but no Jean.
The day was perfect and the first part of the ride was fun for me, but we went too long for my poor older horse. He was pushed harder then he should have been, but he seems OK now. He was exhausted at the end of the day though. I don't know if I will ever get him in a trailer again. My horse Ben was a great guy. He hasn't been ridden for 3 years, until Kristina got on him twice in the past couple of months and Ben has only done arena riding. He acted as if he is an old hand at this trail riding stuff! My good mare Dani carried Jill like a pro and made Jill laugh the whole time because Dani is so nosey and amazed at by what she sees. We now think Dani must be the barn busybody and gossip.
Two rides for me this year is rather amazing because it's almost ten years since I stopped riding. I was very sore on Sunday after pushing Spenser forward for two hours, but I recovered quickly and felt OK the next day. I'm up for it again. : )
