Fun with Friends!

Not the past weekend, but the weekend before, I got to meet up with a group of friends from my GMO for a super fun trail ride! We ended up going to Three Creeks, since it was close to the three other trailers hauling out and worked best from a timing perspective. That made it my third trip there in less than a month, but the hill work is good for Ruby's booty ;) someday I'll convince them to haul out to Indian Camp Creek or Broemmelsiek lol. 

It was still technically hunting season (although anterless, so not as busy) so we broke out the orange vests for 4/6 of the riders. Didn't see any hunters, but did run into a group of riders on very cute mules!

It was a super fun time! We shuffled the horses around a few times taking turns being in the lead or being in the back, so all the horses got to work on it a little. 

This mare went snorkeling 🤣 and then she tried to drop and roll and soaked her mom's pretty boots lol. 

This cute gelding forgot how legs worked for a moment haha. 

Still can't believe the weather we're having in December - it's supposed to be 77 tomorrow 😳

I didn't get photos but one of the other mares was super aggressively splashy every time we found water so she ended up dousing anyone standing near her 🤣


Last two photos courtesy of Lauren from Knotted Elm Farm (who I swear used to blog but I cannot find a link womp womp). At any rate, super fun day, and I hope we get to do it again soon!


  1. Looks like a fun day! I've discovered trail riding IS super fun on a horse that also enjoys it. Who knew?

    1. Isn't it though? That's why I'm always happy to lend our Ruby or Trigger if someone wants to ride but isn't sure their horse is up for it :)

  2. That snorkeling photo is gold.

    1. It was even more hilarious in person, that mare is a ham.
