Read between the lines: Any excuse is a good one to saddle up and ride, right? For years, we had a tradition of riding on New Year’s Day, with a potluck gathering at the trailhead with friends afterwards.
Maybe it wasn’t the long-ride-and-expansive-spread of yore, but I did ride today.
And I’ve got the tights to prove it:
|Full-seat tights. Great for bareback riding.
Not so great for staying clean.
I’ve been taking it pretty easy with the pony, sticking with just bareback for now in an attempt to ascertain whether or not my saddle is the cause of her mysterious, tripping-out-on-one-hind-leg incidents that have been occurring since late summer-ish.
|Always happy to get out, even if it’s a short ride.|
|“More peppermints for the cute pony, please?”|
I love this pony. It’s hard to believe she’s going to be 20 years old this year.
|Herding me back out to the pasture.|
Looking forward to a bright 2013 with some new and exciting adventures on the horizon!
