I love to ride. And Geordie has been accommodating enough to ride with me even though he learns on the trail and I have rather more experience then him. Nevertheless we had a completely lovely ride with Joyce at Driftwood Stables in the Sooke environs. She clearly loves her horses and knows what she is doing. I rode Drifter, a Cleveland Bay/Arab cross. Geordie rode a Tennessee Walker named Snow which is a perfect ride for him because of the smooth gait. Here is me being unphotogenic with Drifter (who is very snuggly and pretty). I had the opportunity to ride an Australian saddle which was new to me. I think I did alright but it took a moment to remember my English riding lessons as I am more used to Western. I need to get more comfortable at a canter English style. So much easier Western. My thighs felt the posting the next day!
