Whew! Life's been so busy lately! Time for a little blog catch up...
We went over to my husband's parent's house for Easter. It's something we do every year.
This year had an added surprise and extra fun. My sister-in-law rode over on horseback.
Not just any horse. She rode over on a draft horse!
I already love horses but this guy was amazing!
He was beautiful and huge!
Here's my daughter on him...
Check out the size of his feet next to my father-in-law...
Hubby rode him bareback...his favorite way to ride.
That's his sister standing next to the horse...
He had a huge smile on his face.
I think he really enjoyed this.
I was nervous about riding him and tried to pass on it but they all insisted.
I'm so glad I was able to get past my fear and go for a little ride.
It was incredible!
I've never ridden a horse that was so well trained and responsive.
He did absolutely every little thing I signaled him to do and with NO hesitation!
My sister-in-law rides for the sheriff mounted posse and this is the horse she rides.
He's been through lots of training and testing and it shows! He's amazing!
Here's an example of the size difference between the draft horse and a regular horse...
Since I had my knitting, as I almost always do, they kept
urging me to knit while I was up there to get a photo.
Funny, huh? But, it's not as crazy as knitting in a waterfall!
This was a first for all three of us to ride on a draft horse. I sure hope it's not our last!
I wish I'd had my camera with me that day to get better photos of this gorgeous horse.
At least we had our cell phones! What fun!!! Thanks, Kim! :-D
