Just so you know. I am not the only one in the family who enjoys riding. Laurel caught the bug this summer.
This summer has not been the greatest for outdoor riding. It was really pick and choose the day and hope for the best, but we did manage a couple of fun rides together.
This was the beginning of our ride to the creek. First we work and then we play. See the momma and her baby on this side of the fence? Not good. Laurel and Dixie did a great job getting this pair back to their friends.
"Good job, Laurel, getting the momma and her baby back to the herd. It's fun isn't it"
Look at Old Chief in the background. He is actually in Montana, but we have the very best view of him here in our very backyard. See the winding creek there? Nice!
After work one evening, Dixie and Laurel met me on the road to Red Rock for a quick ride. We rode a little, had a picnic dinner that Laurel made for us, took some pictures (of course) and then continued on our way. It was a bit cool and windy, but we did manage a few decent shots before the sun set too low behind the mountains of Waterton.

I'm not sure I will ever get Michelle on a horse. She had a bad experience when we first moved here. She went riding with some friends on a very cold day, and I mean a really cold day, was not prepared for the wind and yuckiness, rode forever and ended up in a cabin in the middle of nowhere with no matches and got bucked off. Yah, not real fun. Maybe next summer we can talk her into it. Ok Laurel?
