Sunday Challenge " Sports"

The challenge this week is Sports, in honor of the Olympics.The only thing I wanted to see was the Equestrian stuff...which by the way I have not seen. I saw a couple of horses doing dressage and so far that's it. Considering those events are sold out you would think they might cover it a little better...they seem to ....OK I'm going to stop here because I'm pretty sure if I keep going I'm bound to piss somebody off. Back to the challenge. Sports - You had to know it was going to resemble Shirley's over at Ride A Good Horse after all we just spent 4 days doing the same thing so without further ado....                                                               Cross Country Eventing
Endurance Riding
                                     Works for me. Catch you all later and see whatcha got.                  
                                      HAVE A GREAT WEEK

Riding (Thursday)

We had a good ride on Thursday we had a lot of luck though. We had to wait for me to close before we could ride,we didn't get going until about 6:00ish or so. By then the wind had picked up considerably.The sky behind Mattie didn't  look all that promising...the way we went was worse. I thought the wind would blow most of the ugly sky away ....it didn't, we just kept riding into it. The wind got pretty strong....the bonus in that......no bugs.

We could have ridden towards that blue sky behind Gussie.

It didn't matter much what direction we went in because after awhile we were pretty much surrounded by this.
We rode for awhile and then we hit a spot where we ran into some vicious mosquitoes they were turning my horse into a basket case. They must have really liked her cause she was covered in them, usually the wind keeps that kind of pest away but not these guys.....still no excuse for her badness...Gussies face was covered in them and she just kept going straight ahead like she had not a care in the world.
      This is where all the bugs were hiding out, we didn't have as much wind  in this area. It was here we turned around and headed back to the truck. It was on the way back that we got lucky.....we had a bit of thunder and lightening which didn't make any of us happy especially the dogs, but it didn't come too close and all the way back we were getting glimpses of this.                 
The ride finished off with wind no rain and I know I felt like we lucked out.
For those of you that don't know them this is Shirley and Tess....so do you think they know how to relax after a ride.

Riding ( Wednesday)

Shirley and I headed out to ride...a bit of a later start than I wanted but what the hey. So we loaded up the girls and off we went. This is some of our view.

We startled this guy from his perch and thereafter he turned up in almost every shot ...squawking and giving us heck for the disturbance.

Shirley and Gussie, nice pic. 

See that dot to the left.....still squawking.

 We had a nice ride ..a bit warm but thankfully some of that was on a tree shaded trail.Stay tuned for Thursdays ride
