This afternoon Karin arrived after work and got three mares out for a trail ride. As Jake is now riding Oksana she wanted him to have a chance to get to know her before the horse fair. Oksana can go from a walk to a gallop in an instant when asked and Jake needed to know the cues to manage this. Hannah came to ride Galena while Karin rode Eliza. Eliza needs muscle tone and the hills are good for that.
They came upon a deer carcass that was basically just the hide and bones.
The weather was beautifully warm with bright sunshine. That always makes Mark happy to have sun shining on his solar system.The ride was considered successful as no one fell off. WE always say that when the horses come back with the rider still sitting in the saddle. One time we had a rider come leading the horse back and when we asked what happened she replied, "the horse started yelling at me so I got off."
After the ride Indy, Zalena and Ayanna were worked.
She came in for a quick supper before heading out. After supper mom, Joan, Diane, Rebekah, and I all showed up at Ruth's house for game night. Tonight MOM WON!
A nice email came in from the lady that bought Rosalie's filly. She sent the picture below and wrote:
