It's been a very sad couple of years without horses,
but yesterday we were able to end that horsey drought,
with the first of many riding lessons at Cavallo Farm.
Julia rode Luke...and loved it!
Her riding muscles were a little out of shape,
But for the most part, she remembered everything and did really well!
Quincy rode Red.
Let me just tell you... Red is a beautiful horse.
and, according to Quincy, lot's of fun to ride.
And this mommy's heart is happy.
I'm finally able to give the girls back a part of their lives that they were missing.
(They've both been riding since they were four and practically grew up around horses.)
On a photography note:
I only took 260 pictures at the barn yesterday.
Of course, 245 of them were not so great,
but I was able to play with a few more settings on the camera
and I'm thrilled that I was even able to get any shots in the arena and barn.
It's notoriously difficult to take pictures in those areas because of the low light,
but my 50mm did an amazing job.
While I'm pleased with the pictures I posted here,
I feel like they are just begging to be edited.
I'll let you know how that works out.
Oh... and I can't get this song out of my head.
