There’s no better way to celebrate the best days of summer then with a great gallop in the field with friends.
This morning was the Hunter Pace at the barn. A secretly timed race that each team tries to get as close to the time as possible. Different levels are offered based on rider and horse experience.
Remy and I have done this for several years, but it’s been awhile since we’ve done it. So race today we did. We even got a bonus round as we were requested by the show managers to run the course to make sure all of the directional signs were in place. Remy and I had a blast running out in the field on a beautiful summer day.
Companions are we, enlivened by a mighty gallop quickly sliding a harsh straw basket of sea foam gathered astride the tide.
