Monday's post a little late

 It reminded me that I need to contact Megan about riding Austin and Indy again. I miss riding.


On the way home from our camping trip we stopped at a horse competition in Crary Mills. All the horses were decked out in a little bling, had ribbons braided through their mains and/or tails, and were being groomed and washed to make sure they looked perfect for their showing. The saddles are English saddles (no horn to hold onto). We toured the barns and tack rooms as well as the indoor practice ring. The riders were dressed for competition. Several Potsdam students were competing. The competitors were both kids, teens and adults.

The first 2 pictures are Champ, Arian and Kyle's Horse. Arian came in Fourth during her ride, but we didn't get a chance to watch Kyle.
