DAY 3 AT THE R LAZY S RANCH!






Today was an interesting day for me.

I had asked to switch horses because Dove didn’t seem to want to do much cantering and I did… since I didn’t want to push her, I switched out horses.

This morning, I started with Paco.  I got on and he didn’t seem right.  Lo and behold, he was off… So, the wranglers immediately switched me with Noel.

Noel was a very good boy, but a bit too big for me.  I felt like I was riding one of those mechanical bulls… He was so big and tall, that when he loped, my little body was getting thrown around like a rag doll.

Well, this is one of the best things about R Lazy S… they let you switch horses until you are happy.  So, I switched again to Luna.

Luna had an excellent lope (canter), but her trot wasn’t at all like Lovey Dovey’s, so… I think I will have Luna for tomorrow (loping) and switch back to Lovey Dovey for trotting and Team Penning.

Hubby wants me to tell you all that the food is ‘incredible’ here…

This was yesterday’s ride on Dove (you can see her white ears). We rode along a river and up on top of a plateau. Beautiful.

This photo is out of order… (the internet is a bit dicey during this storm so I’m just going with what I get). I took this of a horse grooming another.

This is the corral of all the horses in the morning – ready to go. Dove is on the right with my red jacket tied onto her saddle.

It was a very nice day… we took a trip through the water.

I took this shot today. The white horses were all together. I thought that was interesting – it kept happening that way.

Mo, the recent gelding came over…

And everyone got fussy.

This was today when I was on Luna. We spent some time in the Snake River.

We came in, got a well needed glass of lemonade – and then the weather came in! Do you see the lightening? It has been storming ever since. But, it will clear by riding time!

NOW, OFF TO DINNER – YUM!
