A little horsing around and relaxing this weekend.

Okay, first of all we relaxed a little this weekend as you can see Emma demonstrating on the deck.

I went to a new stable (where my friend Debbie takes her horse riding lessons) and met a few new horses. This is Fargo. :) I also met Donna, Deb's instructor who I may start taking lessons from.

This is sweet, sweet, Louie. He even posed for me. :)

This is Debbie training for her first dressage competition this weekend.

And later Deb and I took a nice leisurely horse ride. Of course I'm always behind Debbie so she doesn't see how much I allow Ari to eat. LOL! Really, it is a bad habit and I need to break that. :) I can't help but to spoil ALL furry friends. :)

Isn't this trail gorgeous? It was a new trail for me.

The weekend went way too fast but I loved every minute of it! Monday, here I come!

Emma has grown to be quite the little lady. I am so glad you brought her home.

Ms. Emma is too cute for words in her little pose and the horses are beautiful! I'm so glad you enjoyed your ride. And yes, weekends are never long enough!
