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.

Awesome pictures. Is Remy and you in this picture. Elliot poking his face is so cute.
Ah the lament of the photographer. I’m not in any of these. Someone took a couple of pics of me, but I haven’t seen them yet. 😦
Oh dear, hope you’ll find them people. Would love to see you both horsing around.
Pawesome photos! They look like lovely friendly horses. =^.^=
Thanks Bailey ! Yes, they were all good ponies. Especially Elliott. He was so curious with what I was doing.
I could sit and watch horses all day!!! Beautiful!
And it was a wonderful summer day too. Not too hot, not too much humidity. Fluffy clouds. Some people bring tents and a picnic and watch the competition. 🙂
Sounds like a fun time!
It was a blast ! Remy wanted to run like a wild banshee, but I couldn’t let her as the other riders were more timid. Got to love my pony.
“here we value a spirited woman almost as much as we do a spirited horse.” Sounds as if one isn’t being ridden often enough.
Oh you are bad….
Yeah, you can delete that, it didn’t come out as intended. I just woke up and I’m not thinking clearly yet.
Aw come on..it’s funny !!
It’s your blog, so it’s up to you. The way I meant for it to read is that you haven’t been spending enough time with Remy of late, you’re too busy taking photos. Thanks for having a sense of humor! It was kind of funny even though it wasn’t as I intended it to be.
Wonderful Images! What a beautiful day!
Thank you so much Jasmine. Got to admit, this Project 365 has really improved my images. Compare these to the ones from the June race and these are SO much better. Great stuff.
And you’ll just get better and better!
Thank you so much. You are such a sweetie.
Your not so bad your self!
