Violette: I told #1 that I should host this post because I was the star last Saturday. The Big V was just playing a supporting role... You see, I got to take #1 out for a ride!!! Due to a number of reasons, #1 had not actually gotten on a horse in over three years, and Ms. C told her it was high time she did. And last Saturday was the day! Ms. C came with us and rode the Big V. It was also an opportunity to try out the new (to us) bridle and saddle she had bought from a friend.
Isn't the new bridle spiffy?
#1 said she had forgotten how far down the ground was... For those of you who are familiar with horses, I am 17 hands and The Big V is 17.2 hands.
And off we went. It was shortly after this that the Big V decided that a puddle of water was a bottomless hole and refused to go through it. In the end, clever Ms. C made him first go through it backward. What an idiot!
I of course went through it without a problem.
It was a cloudy day and not very warm, but it was so nice to be out together!
Does #1 look happy?!
That's my new saddle by the way.
The Big V kept telling me to hurry up. That boy has ants in his pants!
The last bit was through open country :
And we got this hilarious photo of the Big V being ridden by the headless horsewoman! Neeeeeiiiiigh!
Of course, after we got back, we both got fabulous treat buckets!
I hope we go out for another ride very soon!
