Trail Ride with Breathe....


Breathe and Smokey



Woody and me


I had an awesome trail ride with Breathe today. I hauled over to Canyon Lake and we had a nice 7 mile trail ride along the shoreline, on the Old Hancock Trail. It was hot, but enjoyable, and capped off with a swim with the horses. I can't show you pics of that because I was scantily clad in my black boxers, but it was the best end to a trail ride I've ever had. The horses genuinely seemed to enjoy getting in the water and cooling off. At one point, I rode Woody bareback while he swam underneath me. It was quite a feeling. Neither the people nor the horses were anxious to get out of the water.

Breathe's stable owner joined us at one end of the trail head. She breeds for Aztecas, and she looked at Woody and agrees that he is probably Azteca.

Definitely going to be heading out to Canyon Lake again soon.

Hope all worked out well for Breathe and Smokey - just read her post.

Swimming with your horse is a blast - I did a lot of that when I was young, but haven't in a long while.

Can't wait to go again...

Nice swimwear. Next time bring those swim shoes! :)

Sounds really good, but unfortunately the torrential rain has begun again, and there are weather warnings out!
