|Kristin Horowitz joins us for a trail ride on Lady|
Tee's Impressive Lady, a 15-year-old Quarter Horse, was added to our pasture this month after retiring from her recent stint as a lesson horse at Cal Poly where she was also used by the Cal Poly Equestrian Team. She's got some arthritis, but she's active as anything. We were told her arthritis would keep her from loping or galloping. Seems no one told her. While we tend not to lope her under saddle, she's happy as can be in these pastures and regularly can be seen running the hills, ravines and flats. She has a stiff, funky gate when she gathers speed, but we didn't get her for her show.
Lady's been working really well on our recent trail rides. E joined me for a 10-mile day out on Santa Margarita Ranch, a beautiful property not far from us. I was there to shoot photos of an adventure race (see aforementioned comment re: paying gigs), but enjoyed a fabulously beautiful day of adventure with my daughter as well. So glad she asked to join me! I rode Lady. E took more-reliable, quieter Maddie.
My event photos are also now for sale online (Dawn to Dusk Adventure Challenge and Mud Mash X) and I suspect this sales site will see additional photos go up in coming months as we look toward the next phase of Best Family Adventures enterprises.
