A Marvelous Day

I didn't get to ride my horse today but I did get to do something just as good...in it's own way maybe better. I got to go on a sleigh ride, the really cool part was well all of it but no really the cool part was that the horse pulling was once one of mine. I am so proud of her and impressed by her new owner. This guy really puts in the time and effort to get good end results. Take a look at this first picture at how well behaved these two are. H does this stuff all the time, frequently on his own so they are trained to stand properly and quietly. Nicely done.



We stopped and H got out to be the camera guy. I actually drove the team for about 2 feet.....Ok it was a little further than that,this is the first time I have ever done this. I have had opportunities before but I never felt comfortable enough try it. Now that I've had a little taste I think I'm going to be wanting to do this a lot more.......problem is I no longer own the perfect horse for the job.

How's that for a view. This is in the area we used to live in. I was reminded how much I miss it out there. Anyhow best not to dwell on that. I really enjoyed my sleigh ride and best of all my horse really has found her place in life.

Wow, Moxie seems to be enjoying her new job! And look at you driving! Fun isn't it. Next thing you know, you'll be making a team out of Jake and Skookum..... just sayin'......

Already there. We were talking about it how nice a team they would make.

What a lovely thing to do. I have never gotten to have a sleigh ride so having one would be delightful!

Oh my a sleigh ride...how much fun that would be! I only have seen this on tv so it would be a treat to see in real life. Love the pictures and video!
