Back in the Saddle

We haven't ridden our horses since one fell on me in the fall and Jerry had the heart attack in November.
Saturday we loaded up our horses, saddles, and headed up into the 'hills'.


Only 15 miles from our house is a real nice camp ground and trail head for horses and hikers. The three horses ready to head out and Jerry adjusting his chaps.



Jerry on Cheyenne and leading Remington. We didn't want to leave Rem at home alone and he needs the exercise too, so he carried the pack saddle.


We rode up hills and down little canyons, this was a nice overlook area, actually it was a heli-pad clearing, up in the middle of the woods.


Big trees, the scent of pine and fern, silence.....


It was a very good day.

Good to be back in the saddle.

Looks like it was a perfect day to be back in the saddle! Feels good, doesn't it? Even the little bit of ache in the knees, the hips is a good feeling...

I enjoy everyone's comments. Hello there Clara! Come on over to pet the horsies. It is good to be riding again. Cort can't ride along with us until we over-ride his heeler instinct to 'heel' the horses. He is coming along but not totally trustworthy yet. Karen D, I answered the location query in a post a while back. Now I just may have to make this a treasure hunt with clues along the way. Is that too mean?
