The dogs played.
The wildlife visited the yard.
I trail rode Marcus as the leaves changed color.
The little dog we found got adopted by a friend of mine. They named him Mosby and he is living the good life.
Mike and I celebrated our anniversary.
I photographed the Ride for the Ribbons, as I do every year.
I took on a new lesson student, with a pony named Pandora.
Sadly, my friend Sandy lost her mare to PHF. She was just started a new lease on a standardbred named Mickey, which has helped her with the grief. I got to meet Mickey and go trail riding with them. Lilly isn't sure why I suddenly insisted on pulling her out of the pasture and torturing her.
Mike and I went hiking at Merrill Creek for the first time in three years. It was a beautiful way to spend the day and we took a ton of photos. He has really started getting into the photography thing, and I'm thrilled.
I stepped up Booger's training and she met the challenge. We have now taken two very successful solo trail rides. I'm excited for her future.
I went to the Jersey Devil CTR on a whim. I should have stayed home. Steel did a brilliant 15 miles before being pulled for lameness at the first hold. It's the first time I've ever been pulled on a catch ride, and it's my first ECTRA pull, as well as the end of a three and a half year lucky streak.
I photographed my client with her lovely standardbred.
And now November is upon us. My birthday and the last East Coast ride of the season are fast approaching. Before you know it, the holidays will be here....
