I mentioned that I went horseback riding a couple weeks ago, and although I am terribly behind on posts (I have so many reviews to share!! AURGHHH!) I found it absolutely necessary to post these photos. After all, this IS a beauty blog and what is more beautiful than animals and nature?
I looooove animals and that includes horses. I don't get to go horseback riding all that often, but it is so much fun and is worth all of the butt-soreness afterward. My in-laws are blessed with owning two horses so I tagged along with my mother-in-law on a beautiful day out to the country.
Here is Shiloh. He's a very good horse who follows direction well and enjoys trotting with the slightest heel-squeeze. Oh, and I am the silly scrub sitting on his back.
It's an interesting thing trying to take a self-portrait, horse included, while riding. But I gave my best shot to show how it was from my perspective. :)
Our ridiculously gorgeous view. In a weird way, it feels a little like laying on the beach. Warm, carefree, and blue skies.
After we got back, we took the saddles off the horses and one hilarious gent decided to roll in the dirt.
My boy Shiloh and a few others.
A unicorn? Nope, just 2-year old Masai. Gorgeous light blue eyes! We couldn't ride him because he hasn't been broken yet, since he is so young, but he definitely had a lot of spirit. He likes to RUN!
Did I mention how much personality these guys have? Each is so different. You can even tell in the photos!
And just for funsies, here is a little red tractor that was inside the stable. :D
Ahhh, hopefully looking at these photos will stave me from being rone'ry now that the husband is out of town until Sunday night. The next best thing is playing Sims 3. Le sigh. (shoutout to the hubs, I miss you!)
Anyone else like going horseback riding? What is your favorite animal? Tell in the comments!
