You may remember my post about my 'brave' solo hike in the woods a while ago. Yesterday I did not go alone. I went with my horse "Chai on the Fly". We rode a little over a mile down the road to the neighbors and then had fun on their trails. I love the sound of her hooves in the fallen leaves.
As I rode home up the road, the sun was dipping below the tree lined ridge and I just wish I had taken my camera. I do think we probably would have lost it during one of our gallops through the trails, though.
It was my first real ride since moving and felt great.
I will get a picture of Chai and post it here.
As an aside: I named her "chai" b/c I gave up the drink Chai in order to pay her bills and then I added tne "on the fly" from the www.chaionthefly.blogspot.com I asked her permission and she was happy to say yes! I was thrilled she needed a 'big girl name'.
