Still Smiling :-)

We have had two horrid weather days. Apparently this is Paige's fault. When she came out for Rolex a couple years ago, they had to send everyone home because of tornadoes. Way to go!



Rain or shine, this afternoon was our scheduled ride time, fit in between all sorts of fun activities. We took Hickory over to a friend's all weather arena. He was perfect.





And I even popped him over some tiny jumps.



And ended the ride with a smile. I am really looking forward to learning a lot from Hickory and having a good time doing it.

Thank you Paige for sharing your wonderful horse with me.

I'm not sure which I am more envious of, the horse or the sweater.

I don't have room for a horse but I could totally stash that sweater away. :)

The smile says it all! Even rain can't dampen your spirits.

I miss having horses and always wanted to learn riding English style. Enjoy it for all it is worth, which you of course know is a lot!
