When I lived in CA, my sister and I would ride every week. It started off with weekly lessons, and when those came to an end, we ended up working in exchange for rides.
I was going through pictures earlier today and stumbled across a bunch we took while we were there. I have no idea if these horses are still at the ranch, but it was nice to see them all again, so to speak. 🙂
This is Pal, who I rode most often. He was really sweet and fun to ride:
My sister usually rode a halflinger gelding named Rex (or Rex-a-Roni, or Rex-a-Doodle, or whatever ridiculous name we had for him that day) He was definitely a character!
