Well Enough to Ride

That little hospital stay I had 3 weeks ago really kicked my butt! It took me 2 weeks to get my taste buds back and feel like my old self. I finally felt good enough to go ride last Friday October 2nd. It was a beautiful afternoon. The last I rode was the Wednesday before I went into the hospital 9-11. I rode Diamond that day around the pasture.

I decided to ride Fancy at the State Park. I typically take 2 horses so I can ride both but this trip I chose not to do that.

I had the trails all to myself. I only met one person who was hiking.

It felt so good to be back in the saddle again!

There were a lot of these pretty yellow flowers along the trail.

My favorite part of the trail is along the creek that is covered in foliage.

I love how the light shines through the trees.

Even though Fancy did most of the work I think she enjoyed it as much as I did.

I am planning to go on a trail ride in 2 weeks at a new State Park that is being developed in our county. I am very excited about that.

I got through and back to the barn in time to watch the sunset. It was icing on the cake for a good day.

Have a good one!


  1. So glad your are back to your old self and back in the saddle! That day was a great day weather wise for riding or being outside! Love the sunset as always!
