Trail Ride

The girls and I were fortunate to go on a trail ride last weekend.  I know I'm behind but oh well!  A friend of mine up here has a lot of horses and invited us out for a ride out by her home.
It was their first ever "REAL" trail ride!  They had a good time.  By the end of the ride their butts and legs hurt, and they were starving(not really but that's what they said).
We rode along the shore of Lake Michigan in and out of water, through the trees.  It was an experience they won't forget anytime soon.  My friend ponied my little Pixie since she is still a little scared to right on her own, ok a lot scared!!

The last picture is towards the end of our ride.  Flies were terrible which was hard for the horses.  All in all it was a great ride and the girls got a lesson in trail riding and area history.
Thanks to a great friend. 


  1. Looks like a good ride, flies and all. Glad everyone enjoyed themselves. I'm hitching to get back out there, but waiting til the back stops aching.

  2. It was a good ride. I learned it's hard to take pictures while riding. I hope your back heals soon so you are able to get back to riding soon.
