A and I got up kinda-sorta early on Saturday to go to her barn. I'd brought breeches, socks, and half chaps. I had some shoes that I felt would be sturdy enough for riding.
Here's the (first) really cool thing about A's barn: it's within walking distance of her flat. She left D with a set of spare keys and instructions on her washer (because, oh my god, wash at every opportunity) and told him to make himself at home. And we went on the short walk to her barn.
|Walk out of a neighborhood, and bam. Ponies.|
|This was adorable.|
"Hey, Mom's here!"
|Nancy giving me a well-deserved side eye. Smart pony.|
|Blurry from the dslr because I took it with me!|
|A pointing out the pony-eating tarps.|
See how the road goes left and there's a break in the woods on the straight? We went in the woods.
|Pretty steep for this coastal Georgia girl.|
|A said to let Nancy pick her path and that "little" mare was amazing.|
|Take a moment to appreciate how ghetto I am and how nice A's stuff is.|
|"Screw you, stranger."|
|Kika, checking things out.|
|I loved this little pony! So much personality!|
I'm absolutely indebted to A for giving me this experience! I cannot thank her enough! One day, we'll reciprocate. :)
