We had a great ride today and the horses are all doing well. Just like any job, there are ups and downs over the course of a month. Those days like today make it all worthwhile. It was a beautiful day in Oklahoma with enough wind to keep an otherwise hot day pleasant. The horses were all given a ride and one colt worked all day.
A day in the saddle is therapeutic physically and mentally. You hit the shower tired, but happy. Riding a horse clears your mind of all the junk that builds up over the week. Many people report regular riding actually increases their everyday job performance because the come to work rejuvenated and relaxed.
Memorial Day Weekend is typically a great time to ride in Oklahoma. The weather is warm and the landscape is green. The sunshine, fresh air, and rocking chair horse ride watching the beautiful scenery as you go by is an excellent way to spend the holiday. You can’t beat it!
