proud-walking jingle in the midnight sun

We had a very warm and eventful Memorial Day weekend. There was much riding and too much eating! Here is Pie getting it all started with a treat. Maizie took these photos of me riding him without tack. He is a sweet boy to let me do this. He and I both look rather round in these photos! I don't think he really is that sway-backed and I am hoping that my butt isn't really that big! lol!

Above, we are burning some calories trotting. I have a saddle on at this point, but I have been trotting him bareback (with the bitless bridle) and his trot is super smooth.

Our roses looked perfect in the morning before our Memorial Day picnic. I was an avid gardener back in the time before horses. Some of the flowers are forgiving and allow me to pretend that I am still a gardener. These roses are one such flower!

Noodle had the right idea all weekend. We rested in the cool breezes of the afternoons. I hope your holiday was fun too and full of horsey rides!

Below is a silly video of me riding Pie without tack. Turn your sound down. Look at me holding on to his mane like it is reins!

  3. allhorsestuff - good luck with the "no night eating" plan. I thought you might enjoy Noodlebug's photo napping on the bed!

    Paint Girl - Noodle's tail is so funny in that picture! I bet you will ride your Chance bareback someday!

  4. I love the video! You look awesome and Pie looks so enormous! But you, you look very tny! Like a little peanut on a big ole horse! Do you ever ride under that flowery arch? because that looks like such a fun little portal. I also have to say, I saw Noodle and laughed out loud! That is the cutest thing ever. I mean CUTEST. THING. EVER!

  5. You are TINY but oh so brave! :)
    Good for you for riding so natural, how fun...I try to do bareback as much as possible but bitless...and bridleless and halterless...I'm too nerv for that-for ROCKET speed to come out when spook demons approach.
    Pie is a cutie Pie, lol!
    Do roses do best in full sun?! I want that arch in my backyard!!
