Where i ride my horse!

i took a walk (instead of riding) for the first time where i ride. i wanted to get some pics to share. there are still some trails that we haven't explored, more meet up to the same spot.

anyways, here are the nice parts of Massachusetts for you ;-)

a new trail we went on


there are lots of different pines in this area. following the new trail...


entering the sand pits- aka "the pits". there is a lot of grass there are many spots have grown in in the last few months. there is just sand here. in the fall when the grass dies, it looks very "westerny"


there are several trails through here, some are small and some are bigger like this one. obviously some nice trotting/ loping spots, which we usually walk on to save the horses energy for the "galloping path"!


this has grown in since the last time i was here a few months ago. this is about where we start cantering and we let the horses go as fast as they want which usually turns into a gallop and the a dead run at the bottom of the hill. we end at that sandy spot in the left distance


still continuing on to the end hill- aka "the cantering hill". is end on a hill that is short and a perfect for cantering up). from here in out the path is grass free except some grass clumps in which my horse can never decide which side she wants to go around :-P oh and for any one wondering, this is no where near the ocean, all this sand is in the middle of the woods!


close up!


still getting closer, the cantering hill is near and the horses are full of energy


the cantering hill is the left open space, some of it is covered but the pine tree


still on the same path but if you looked to your right, you would see another path (in which my horse tries to steer towards when she's had enough!)
some hoof prints in the bottom of the pic


hoof prints in the sand, nearing the cantering hill and nearing the spot where they go to the super gallop and get pretty competitive we go back and fourth a few times racing and then we go on our way


small foot path leaving the pits


dried up swamp area where moss clung to a dead tree


on a different trail, with wet areas on both sides- some trees


another cantering path


a few feet up that path, some trees i liked


a mossy log


a stone wall with some old rusted car parts and glass bottles




continuing on the path, still cantering. well, if your on a short horse, more like a pony it nice for cantering. my horse is 14.3 (known as tall compared to my friends short 13.? horse) and i was hitting a lot of branches :shock:


that is all for now. i hope to get more pics of some other trails when i am actually riding!!

i was on foot when those pics were taken when i get more pics of places i ride, there will be horses!!

she's not really my horse, she is my friends moms horse but i ride her so much, that she calls it my horse

here are some older photos:


this was when we were riding in an orchard, one of out favorite spots to gallops up the hills and paths. the orchard is behind us and were were watching someone riding is a giant ring!


there were 2 horses in the field next to the ring, one of them a gorgeous Friesian


this is another common resting spot for us. we had lunch there when the pics were taken




Angel.... (aka Moose-a-loosa)
