Nice day for a ride

Nice day for a ride.
I have not been riding much this spring for some reason. Not because I don't want to, but it just hasn't worked out that I can. Chyann though, everyday is out playing with one of the horses and keeping them tuned up.
So, today we decided to head out.
While I was getting Gypsy ready Chyann got caught getting on Jenny with no rope/halter/bridle. She is a horse-loving, no fear gal that is for sure.

Oops, Mom saw me! Better get off....

Who, me? I'm miss innocent!

This is Gypsy.
She is an Arabian cross of some sort. About 20 years old.
She is looking good this year.

We took the horses up and down the drive way a few times then headed out around the pasture next door.
It wasn't a long ride since Gypsy had not been out in a while, she is a little barn sour and I thought it best to keep the ride short and sweet.
Chyann riding her little unicorn, Casper. As you can see she has clearly out grown him, but he is her favorite and they have a lot of fun together. She taught him to pull her on a sled last winter. Wow, that was so cool, I can't believe she was able to do that. We are looking to get her a cart for him to pull.

I need to finish weeding the garden, but she has talked me into going riding first.
So, we are heading out again today.

Nice looking horses. Casper is so cute. I don't know a lot about horses, is he a minature or a pony?

Casper is a mini. We've had him since he was 2, so they have grown up together..

I just assumed he was a pony, I guess I don't know the difference between a mini and a pony. I'd ALWAYS choose horseback riding with my daughter over weeding. You made the right choice!

Wow! Her toes are almost draging in the dirt.

Oh my Casper is so cute, but shouldn't Casper be a "Prince" instead? He looks so royal and dashing, hee, hee.
