Dawn Goes horseback riding

Howdee all,

My second time on a horse…

A neighbor of Mark and Debbie's likes to take a ride everyday…she has two horses..and likes to exercise the other..

So she invited me to ride.

This is the horse i am riding…Jeannie

but..Merilee took it easy knowing it was my first timehorseback riding with merrilee_003 Jeannie was a very mellow horse she knew the area well .

Jack the dog..followed us..

It was a nice ride..though, I prefer hiking……..


  1. Hey, wait a minute. . . Merilee is the neighbor and not the horse, right?!?!

    Question you have a camera in your hat or are you actually riding with no hands so you can take pictures?

    Dawn, Dawn...(sigh) what are we going to do with you?

    Happy New Year!

  2. Cool! You look like a natural!

  3. Hey Dawn, only the second time on a horse.??
    With your normal greeting on your blog of "Howdee all", I had this picture in my mind of an accomplished Horsewoman. {:)

  4. I've only ridden a few times too, and all I can remember is how sore I was after the! A horsewoman I am not! ;c)

  5. Wonderful pictures! Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
