    My favorite activity in the summer is “hanging out” with my horse…whether it be riding or just out in the field with him!

    Summertime can be too hot ride, so I like to go for an early morning ride. One of the ranch borders is a state park, so there are lots of nice trails. Later in the day, I like to put a halter on my horse and take him for a walk along the long tree-lined driveway to the road and back. It’s time to just to be with my boy and talk to him. He can’t answer, but he’s a good listener.

    Riding my Arabian horse Magnum Kahil at the end of the day and ponying my other Arabian Grace. We leave at 5:30 and ride into the hills to watch the sunset. I let them graze a bit before we head back home. Grace loves to see how much she can eat along the way but thoroughly enjoys being ponyed.

    Hello, first of all I’d like to say I really enjoyed this post on acupressure. But then I look forward to any and all posts from you. Next, my favorite time spent with my horses is after a trail ride and she is all hot and sweaty, and so am I. I like to cool us both off with a hose to get us refreshed. It’s wonderful!!

    Our favorite summertime activities with our horse are going to shows and performing with the drill team. We also like to trail ride and take our horses for a nice cool walk in the creek. Most of our spare time is spent with our horses.

    Cajun & my favorite summer activity is water play. No matter if it is in the creek near our home, around the water trough or playing ” catch me with the hose” , he is a true water bug and no doubt wishes we lived near a beach.

    Our favorite summertime activities are early morning arena work followed by a swim in the pond. The horses love to lay in the water!

    Summer is my favorite time to ride, because i can watch all the crops growing . I love watching the wheat dance with the wind , it’s so peaceful. God’s work is everywhere this time of year.

    Early morning rides – in shorts!

    I just love to sit with my horse as he munches on some grass!

    As summer progresses and the days get hotter, we begin to escape up into the cooler mountains surrounding our house. As the snow melts, our rides venture higher to hidden clear lakes and beautiful untouched meadows. The worries of work and life are left behind and all that is on our minds is where do we want to go, how far, and what wonderful things will we see!

    I am retraining an OT Arabian to be a trail, pleasure horse. We are really learning to like the long, slow trot. No gimmicks, just lots of saddle time!

    I love to break the hose out and call the horses over to get sprayed. My QH/TB filly comes running over and as I start spraying her she starts turning around to make sure I get her butt sprayed. Then she wants her front sprayed then her butt again. She will run off to roll and if it looks like I’m putting the hose away she comes back for more butt spraying. It’s a time to be carefree, no work all play, work comes later.

    My favorite activity with my gelding Jack is to take a break from riding and just hand graze him out of the pasture. He loves to eat one certain weed and we go hunting for it! He relaxes and we just hang out together. I groom him and give him scratches and he just loves it!

    Going for a drive with my friends. We have everything from minis to drafts. So much fun!

    We love trail rides. Fast, slow, day or weekend, tough terrain or not, we love when summer because that means trail rides at our house 🙂
