Finally Got to Ride

Last Thursday December 10th also the same day we went to Christmas on the Frontier I FINALLY got to ride. It was a beautiful day. I didn't have a long time to ride and with the daylight so short I chose to ride where I keep the horses.

I rode Fancy.

She has been difficult to catch lately and a bit jumpy when I have ridden her. I think she is going to be one of those horses that does much better when used more often. That is partly due to the fact she is a relatively young horse (8yrs)

Speaking of being jumpy, she just about dislodged me when she was startled by rustling in the trees we were riding by. You would have thought she'd seen a ghost! I finally got her stopped and facing the direction of the sound. Then I finally saw what was making the noise.

Yep, cows! This horse that was raised on a ranch was afraid of cows! Really??!! Goofy horse!

She really worked herself up into a sweat. I didn't ride her that hard at all!

I definitely need to try to ride more often. That might be a bit tough with Christmas a week a way. I still have shopping to do! Hoping to maybe finish it up in the next few days.

Have a good one!
