Two Rides in Two Days

Well, I should have written this DAYS ago, but it has been way too hectic around here! We had people over for the football game, just a small crowd, but there is still preparation involved. Sunday morning it was really nice out -- probably about 30 degrees, so we siezed the opportunity to ride! We took The Girls through the woods near our house and it was just great! The neighbors had some logging done last fall, so the trails looked a little different. It was like riding a new trail at times. We only had about an hour, and it was too bad, because I could have stayed out there all day!

Then on Tuesday we got HAMMERED with lake effect snow.....we had white-out conditions all over the area. Businesses and schools shut down. It was really something. That evening we spent a lot of time out in the barn getting everything ready for what we knew would be a rough couple of days. We started wondering if the county had plowed the paved road near us we thought, "Let's go check it out!" and saddled up The Girls and took off! It was such a beautiful ride with large snowflakes falling, the moon shining, and no one around! As it turns out, they had not yet plowed the road, so there we were, riding down the middle of the road. Just too cool! The Girls loved it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and sending me an email! ;) Now I've found you.
Sounds like you had a great ride. I've always wanted to ride in the snow, but we don't get much here and I'd probably worry my horse would slip and fall or something, anyway!
Have a great weekend!
