Clyde & Bonnie sneakily eating the rose bushes, unaware that they are been watched.
I have recently moved my horse’s so that I am able to give their previous paddock a rest. I loved watching the horse’s become reacquainted with each other. The shaking of their heads, stamping of their feet, the noises they make… I could watch them all day. There is something intreging about the Equis language.
Horse’s names left to right: Clyde, Diva, Bessy, Gypsy & Bonnie.
What a beautiful day it was today. For once my Dad and I had a weekend off together so we decided to go for a trail ride. As the weather hasn’t been ideal for riding lately we haven’t had the opportunity to take the horses out in a while. Pepped up on the green grass that has finally started to grow the horses; Bonnie and Clyde (no pun intended) were very excited to be out and about.
We rode up the foothills of the mountains, taking a breath up the top for the horses and taking time to get off and stretch our legs. After not having ridden in a while my legs were quite sore. Where we rode a fire went through last year, so it was nice to see that the gum trees have rejuvenated and began growing back. Nature will always find a way…
Dad and I completely lost track of time. We were having such an amazing time out on the trail, exploring the terrain. Three hours later we arrived home, giving the horses a hose down and a big drink of water.
Having a short break after riding up a massive hill in the bush this afternoon. What a beautiful day for a ride !!
