My Saturday ride

18 Sep

I hadn’t been to the barn in about two weeks with all the wedding festivities so yesterday was my first day back and wow did it feel good to get back in the saddle.  I’m feeling the soreness today though.  You forget how many muscles you use riding (even though many who do NOT ride, beg to differ).  Today my back, shoulders, thighs and more are feeling the burn.  Above is a mare from my barn who I rode yesterday.  I took her out on the trail first to just get out of the arena.  If you ride dressage you know how much time you spend in a dressage court and how nice it can be to get out sometimes.  I’m spending today lounging and recovering but I’ll be back in the saddle on Tuesday 🙂  I’ll try to take some more photos then of the horses.  They are the most beautiful animal, I just can’t get enough.

    What a beauty! I’ve been dying to horse ride and plan on taking a few lessons in the next month or so. Cannot wait!

    Oh man, this year the first time I really rode any length of time was a 3-hour trail ride… and then a 6-hour one the next weekend. I was practically useless I was so sore. 😀

      I would love to go on a 6-hour trail ride – you must have your horse on the most amazing property 🙂 It’s so funny how when you ride everyday you don’t think it’s a work-out because you never get sore but if you take a break…. oh boy, it’s a work-out!
