The Best Way to Start the New Year!
… on horseback, of course!
My husband and I went for a short bareback stroll just before midnight to bring in the new year right! If you’ve never tried it, you should! It is really fun.
This is coming from someone who usually is alseep by 10:30 on New Year’s Eve. I had asked my husband to wake me up if I dozed off, but this year I managed to stay awake for the first time in years. We pulled on cover-alls over pajamas, grabbed a helmet and bridles and off we went! There were fireworks in all directions when the clock struck 12. Beautiful! Our horses were freshy and snorty, but they were quite good, and I think they even enjoyed the adventure a bit, especially the part where we stopped to graze while watching fireworks.
In the morning I went trail riding with some friends and got in a nice 8.5 mile training ride. It was a bit chilly, but the sun was shining and it turned out to be a pretty nice day.
2016 is off to a good start!
