In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Today Was a Good Day.”
I have so many, and can go in so many directions with this prompt. I decided to share the day I was able to cross horse back riding on the beach off my bucket list. Now, my ride wasn’t a beautiful, warm summer day….I went on a beautiful, crisp, cold day in December. I had the chance to ride on ‘our’ beach with some of the saltwater Cowboys,,,,,,pretty darn good for a gal who grew up loving horses from NJ.
“When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ”
~William Shakespeare, Henry V~
So, here I am with Dixie, my riding partner. She’s a pretty little paint.
Now, you can’t tell I was shaking in my boots. The last time I sat/rode a horse, I was 18!!!
Here I am with John, Dixie’s owner and a 100% Teager Saltwater Cowboy!!
The best part…The entire 3 hour ride. Yes folks,,my tender butt was in the saddle for 3 hours!!! We trotted, we walked in the surf and I was in complete heaven!! It was a Great Day!!!!!!

BTW…I attempted to insert a Mesh Gallery and couldn’t figure it out…may take another pot of coffee!!!
