on moonlight bay (the Big Bay, that is)

Decided to ride this evening instead of during the day and ended up riding into dusk as the moon rose over A in the arena. It was so lovely.

We had one horsefly divebomb us, but it was a half-hearted attempt and one swat sent him packing.

We added in some 20m circles at the trot tonight and did a decent job with them. I was especially proud of the Big Bay because everyone else was getting fed in the barn while we rode and he handled it really well. :)

Couldn't resist the song - we had some really nice trotting with that lovely moon coming up, and some of the lyrics are pretty on target!

Sounds like a perfect evening ride.

The lyrics do seem on target. Keil Bay has stolen your heart but we already knew that.

I always feel happy when I see you or K riding, especially when you are both riding together!

I often think of the movie with Susan Sarandon where she and her two children ride together through their farm - I remember when I first saw that movie and thought what a far-off dream that would be. Feeling very fortunate right now as I think of it, with all these terrific equines and November Hill. Thanks, Matthew. You made it happen for all of us.
