Pictures of me and my horse

Well, as promised, here are a few pictures of me and my horse during our weekend ride!

Actually, there aren't many good pictures of me actually riding. For one thing, my look of concentration is not at all attractive. For another thing, my husband is still learning to use the professional-grade camera his brother gave him, and I think moving targets might be a little bit beyond him.

But here are a few good pictures that he did get, as I was tacking Panama up and just after I mounted.

Panama looks super cute in this picture, doesn't he?

This one has the look of a very intimate moment between us, which I like:

Finally, this picture was taken shortly after I mounted. You can tell in Panama's expression that he was in a good mood yesterday, possibly even looking forward to the ride. So I like the picture even though I think my bulky sweatshirt and my too-big jeans (more comfortable for riding) make me look fat!

Nice to see some updated pics and glad it's still nice enough for you to get out and ride. Winter has arrived super early here this year.

Hi Kathy, good to hear from you! We have been having a phenomenal Indian summer -- it was near 70 degrees today! Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 30s with freezing rain, but it'll be back up to 60 by the weekend.

It's been so beautiful that I actually forgot the rest of the country wasn't experiencing the same. I saw a major headline today about the "cold start to winter," and I thought, "Huh???"

I'm definitely not complaining, though -- the gorgeous warm weather has given me lots of opportunities to ride Panama and to work on my car (since we don't have a garage).
