I went riding today for the first time in seven months. It should have been only six but last time I attempted to ride there was a hoof that connected with my thigh, leaving me uninterested in climbing in the saddle.
It was wonderful.
I climbed hills, crossed fields, and even got a little pink from the sunshine. Half way through our ride, the tall one, old one and I enjoyed an adult beverage and shot the breeze.
Overall, it was wonderful way to spend a day of vacation, especially after how hard we worked yesterday.
Granted, I might not be walking very well tomorrow. Three hours in the saddle after all that time off will do that to you.
But it was totally worth it. If only I could spend every day that way.
