Horse Life

Riding has become such a big part of my life over the past year.  When Madison got Vince, Mata Hari was still coming off her last suspensory tear injury. I took over the duty of riding her at a walk for 10 minutes then 15 minutes then 20 minutes and so on until she was totally healed.  It was a long slow process but it was huge for both of us since we built a bond during that time that has become something special.

 Now I get to have this view from her back on a regular basis!

And we do much of our riding with these two!

 Taking selfies with a horse isn't easy when your arms are as short as mine.  You cut off half their face!

 Note the extremely saggy lower lip.  This is Mata Hari sleeping while getting groomed.  Totally relaxed.

The view never gets old.

Sometimes we just hang out together for a while after a ride.

It's a lovely way to spend a part of my day!

What a beautiful stable area! Living in the southwest desert I really envy your green grass. I'm glad you have been able to continue to ride :)
