Going for a Ride

I feel like I've been run over by a steam roller this week and have a terrible time getting my motivation in line with my to-do list. I'm back down to just working 5 days a week, which is lovely, but I'm quite far behind on the rest of my life and have out of town family visiting. 


I took a look at the list for today, and decided the best way to get through it was just to start out with a ride on Cuna. 

Love. This. 
Somehow, the view between his ears just makes everything better, every time. We started out by 
galloping up my favorite hill after a quick warmup. Then we hacked to the arena and popped over a cross rail a few times. I wanted to make sure I could ride him to the base of the fence, keep my hands in his mane, and ride smoothly over. It took a couple tries, but when we were in sync, I called it a day. 

It's amazing how something as simple as a 30 minute ride can completely clear my head. I feel so much more relaxed and focused. 



  1. Wow the scenery is gorgeous!!

  2. Yay for cross country schooling! Demand pictures/video!!!!!!!!

  3. Your 4 legged man knows how to make you happy!

  4. Horses are the ultimate stress-reliever, tension releaser, and re-energizer. Gorgeous panorama :)

  5. There is definitely clear vision between ears. Really does make everything seem right.

  6. Lovely picture - cute Cuna fuzziness plus beautiful nature. Smart of you to ride him first thing. Makes the rest of the day so much more positive. =]

  7. I'm glad the ride made you feel better!

    I can't wait to read about the XC schooling.
