a week in pictures

It's been one of those weeks where nothing has happened that warrants its own full blog post...just a lot of random little stuff here and there.

The Man Against Horse ride is next weekend and I can't wait! Liberty and I are going to be doing the 25. It's been four years since I've done this ride and I've been on pins and needles for the past month, just wanting the ride weekend to Be Here already.

Gina sent this to me. Liberty went out all by
herself like a big girl and was very good. :)
This amusing face got worked last weekend, her first time since her massage. I could tell a big difference under saddle. She was moving well, and it wasn't like trying to steer a 2x4.

"Behold me, in my innocence."

Innocent-face got a sloppy mash...

...which she proceeded to drool all over my
suburban. Which had just gone through the
car wash the day before.
I've been doing ride prep for Man Against Horse here and there in the evenings as I think about stuff that needs done. The other night, I made a new fancy red tail ribbon for Liberty to wear, since the first one I made got sacrificed to the manzanita at the Prescott Chaparral ride. Trying not to get too attached to this one, since there is also more manzanita along this trail. Lots of manzanita.

She didn't end up needing it at the last ride,
but I'm still using it as a precaution. Young
horses are unpredictable.
And somewhere along the way, fall happened:

Running errands mid-morning. Nice.
Display of multi-functionality:
Hoof boot. Water bottle holder.
And finally, it's the weekend. Let's make some trail dust.

good life philosophy
