New Year's Eve Ride 12-31-16

Our weather can be unpredictable this time of year. Remi was really hoping to ride while she was here. God answered her prayer. New Year's Eve we went riding.

I coaxed the horses into the round pen. They stilled didn't want to be "caught". I got a halter on Clyde and led him out of the pen. The girls wanted to ride him while I was catching another horse for me to ride. Kennedy said she would lead Clyde while Remi rode.

We finally get everyone on horseback and begin our ride.

Kennedy wanted to ride Diamond again.

Stopping for a drink of water.

Me and Kennedy.

Remi having a good time.

After a while, Kennedy decided she wanted to ride with Remi.

They look like pros!

Having fun!

The girls wanted to switch so each could have a turn in the saddle and they needed to stretch their legs. Clyde and I take a selfie while they do that.

Remi's turn to be in the front again.

Kennedy wanted to ride by herself and make Clyde trot.

Click here to see a video of Remi trotting. We had a little scare at the end of the video when Clyde stumbled. Being an old horse I think he just didn't pick up his foot high enough and caught it on the ground. Remi bumped her hand against the saddle horn but other than being startled she wasn't hurt and she wasn't so scared that she wanted to quit! I told her how proud I was she didn't freak out. It still scares me when the horse does it to me!

We had a great time!

Have a good one!
