Fall Colors Between Rhio's Ears

Fall Colors Between Rhio's Ears

Tuesday, May 25, 2010


10:30 pm tacking up (yes, the lights were on in the barn, but it's still too dark for good photos so it looks like we were tacking up in the dark)

It was a gorgeous night.  My roommate Kristi and I decided we just HAD to go for a ride.  So we fetched our boys from their evening grazing and tacked them up at 10:30 pm by the light of an almost-full moon.  I think the horses were a little confused, but they didn't complain.  Off we went down the road, listening to how loud our horses' hooves seemed on the gravel road and to the symphony of frogs serenading us.  

Both horses & humans wore some reflective gear and our road is extremely quiet, so we met no vehicles. This was the first night ride for Kristi & Cody, and for Rhio.  It was great - the horses were quiet & willing and we didn't feel much need for conversation, just drinking in the beauty of it all.
