Just after Christmas I went out with Biasini to the forest trails. There was about a foot of fresh snow. It was like riding through an Enchanted forest.
Here is the Enchanted Forest in December
And now here is the same trail in April. I have added a voice over thanks to the suggestion of Diana at My Life and Horse Stories. Her trail rides are through her neighbourhood. I enjoy hearing her speak on what she is riding past so I thought I should give it a try. Click on her blog to see her trail riding video Here is the trail in spring.
I will also show you a photo of the goat trail. There are no goats here but we call it the goat trail as it goes up on one side and down on the other and the pathway is very narrow. This name differentiates it from other trails in the forest.
As Biasini and I had worked hard for three days in the arena, I wanted to finish the month of April with a forest trail ride but the Weather Gods declined to give us the weather to do that. April 30 was a cold (5 Celsius) and extremely windy (gusts up to 80 kph). I was not going into the forest, with those winds, and have a tree branch crash down on us. So I chose to go to the front of the farm and walk around the paddocks. A friend took a snap of us.
I wish you all a peaceful and enjoyable weekend.
