Sunny and dry=time to hike!

I can’t resist his poses!

The weather gods and the work gods smiled at me today, so once again I hitched up and tossed Flash in the trailer to explore new local trails being rebuilt. This time around I wore my trail running sneakers instead of my barn boots, which meant we stuck to the gravel roads instead of the single track but still had plenty of fun.

Yeah, it’s steep heading down into the canyon!

It was warm but the wind still has a bite to it, just enough we didn’t sweat too badly climbing back up the steep ass hill we followed down into the canyon.

Flash loves hiking…I mean eating…

I still have some adjustments to make, having Flash carry our gear is definitely nice but I want to make sure it doesn’t move or cause discomfort at all. I’m picking up a custom breast collar for him since the one I currently have is Arab sized…and Flash does not have Arab shoulders 😄

Flash did have some riders after all!

Next time I really have to remember the sunscreen… living under the almost perpetual grey winter skies here makes me forget that sun=sunburn!

After years of borrowing horses, working to ride and catch riding, I finally have my own horse, a spicy chocolate mare...but also a demanding day job (who doesn't?), a nerdy husband, a soccer loving kid who needs to be parented (by me, duh), and the ultimate trail buddy, a chocolate Labradork!
