Riding Again

On Friday I finally got to ride a horse for the first time in nearly 2 months. It was great.


The place is located about 15 minutes from Strathroy and Carla, the trainer, gave me a lesson.


I rode Bentley, a large, chestnut, Belgian/Thoroughbred cross.



I got to brush him…



and clean his hooves…



then I got my tack…



and hopped on him.



What I learned is: Lara is really out of shape. But it was so nice to be back in the saddle again.


An hour later, I was just about spent and my legs felt like jell-o. It was glorious. I’m still not walking normal.


I took Bentley back to his pasture…



and went away happy…



I love horses. They make me smile.



  1. A moment of joy and sincerely hope you will be able to enjoy even more horse riding – as you photo’s display the happiness of the day.
