Back in the Saddle

Last week I had the opportunity to go on a two-hour trail ride near Banff, Alberta with some colleagues. It was a beautiful day for a leisurely ride surrounded by mountains, trees and rivers. My white horse named Snoopy was in no hurry to get anywhere. I occasionally had to get him moving a bit faster! But he was well-behaved and didn’t insist on stopping to graze like some of his friends. I had a great time and look forward to future horseback riding adventures.

I discovered it's not easy taking photos when you're bouncing along on a horse.

  1. That looks beautiful! I have always wanted to go riding out in the mountains or somewhere in the greater Northwest. (I want to go riding where they filmed Rooster Cogburn, even though that was shot in Oregon, not Alberta)

  2. I took riding lessons as a child and loved them. My secret dream is to have a horse of my own someday (though I don’t know the first thing about horses – other than I adore them – and I live in a city and horses are expensive.) Taking riding lessons again is on my 30 Before 30 list, and seeing your pictures totally reaffirmed it’s something I need to do.
