Today I went horseback riding. Yep. I actually went horseback riding again for the first time in a month. Shocking, right? Well I went on a trail ride today for my birthday, with two of my friends. The ranch was super busy today, with a huge birthday party and a ton of people doing trail rides.
I was naming all the horses I saw, and I saw a trainee lead out a buckskin horse that looked IDENTICAL to Scotch. Almost, at least. It was really difficult to tell the difference, and I actually had thought Scout was Scotch.
I was assigned Scout, and when they brought him up to the mounting block, the yelled “Scout?”. I was in doubt, thinking it was Scotch. But I got on anyways. The trainee knew me already, knowing I was experienced so she didn’t have to teach me the basics on riding for the trail.
The trail was fairly normal, I even found out that the trainee taking the rear of the trail had an identical helmet to mine and almost identical boots. After the trail, I went through a speed round around the ranch, speed walking and quickly taking pictures of horses all in ten minutes.
Lame late night post, I know. But don’t worry! I’ll have many posts coming up (10.. to be exact). Summer camp is coming in exactly a week, and I’ll be posting about each and every day! I can’t wait!
