So when I received a text from Nancy inviting me to a group hack at Coveside saturday I was all 'hell yes'. I checked to see if Tanya could come as well and the answer was yes. The group at this stable are all so nice and welcoming.
The weather couldn't have been more cooperative: sunny and warm but with few bugs. Carmen was a bit reluctant to load - I'm pretty sure she was thinking that we were going somewhere to work hard.
Tanya and I met at the parking lot. I tied Carmen to the trailer to get her tacked up. This is the first time I have tried this with her and she was a star. We mounted up and headed up to the barn. There was about 10 other riders (I didn't count so not sure). It was a mixed group of ages and experiences but we were all excited to head out.
|Carmen: that's a lot of horses|
|off we go!|
|Tanya also really excited to head out|
|I love ferns, especially this time of year|
|hey, did anyone remember to bring a flask?|
|maybe one day we will canter this field|
|look at those relaxed ears|
|turns out that goats like snacks too|
We headed out after chatting and eating. It was a perfect day for Carmen and I.
