the ranch pt 3

My favorite part of the entire trip was the
2-hour trail ride we took through the
"mountains" on the ranch.
In Georgia, our trail rides are going down dirt roads.
This was definitely a new experience on the back of a horse for me.
But it was exhilirating!
The horses were navigating cliffs that were
narrower than my FOOT
and going up & down some pretty steep hills.
My adrenaline was working overtime. 
I keep repeating the mantra:
trust the horse, trust the horse.
I had a really fantastic horse in Ronan.
He was a little bit of a bully and he did not 
like following so he would
try pushing other horses out of the way. 
But I like a strong-willed horse!

All of the following pictures were taken while I was on
That's all I'm saying;)


  1. That looks like so much fun! I love trial riding in different places ... we went on a trail ride in Hawaii when we were on our honeymoon and I felt like I was in heaven :)
