After a very good Easter Sunday service, we decided to tack up and go for a ride. Elaine had not ridden since the fall, but did exceptionally well. The horses are all shedding like crazy, so the area around the fence was like a hair carpet. Elaine took her horse, Alpine, and I chose Biz.
After checking out whether Alpine was in a receptive mood, (she was) we went around the field once just to make sure. Alpine tucked in behind Biz as if she was glued there.
Following the test flight , we went out on the county road, followed by 3 dogs, and then down to the end of the next subdivision. There were no slips and no slides and only one minor spook caused by Biz..reason unknown.
All in all, it doesn't get much better than that for a nice relaxing day!
We hope everybody had a great Easter, and remembered the true meaning of Easter.
Oh yeah, pardon the mud. It is starting to dry out, sort of, maybe.
