Memorial Day – Thank You!

First I have to thank all our Veterans who have sacrificed with their lives as we honor all of those this Memorial Day. We are a military family, my husband was in the Air Force and my daughter is a Captain in the Air Force. My Dad was a Captain in the Army many years ago, rest in peace Dad. ❀ My heart goes out to all who serve or have served as it is a sacrifice that you would not know unless you have experienced. It is a Memorial Day too for all our fallen horses, too many to count in past wars throughout the ages.

Switching gears here, I was able to get out on the trails and I wanted to share some photo’s. I work night shift and so I have mornings free to ride with my friends at the stables. I do have this holiday off so I get to sleep tonight after a 5 day stretch. I usually have my week broken up with days off after a couple of days of work. My days off are all over the place, but it all works for me with my horses. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

My ride on Saturday in between rain storms.
Gracie looking at something on the trail today. It was a pretty morning, so cool at 60 degrees!
Heading down 6th street in Norco today. It was too cold and windy yesterday to ride! Haha, I can’t believe I am writing this at the end of May which is usually in the 80‘s! πŸ˜€

We have been having so much weather it is great! I am wondering if Summer is coming? I’m thinking that with the climate these days, maybe we will have a cooler Summer. I would not mind that at all! I have had a nice weekend even though I had to work. Enjoying my horses and being able to trail ride is always something near and dear to my heart so I am so grateful that I can fit this into my busy schedule!

Miss Chloe after our trail ride. She is such a veteran, with tons of trail miles and is a very steady mount! ❀

I had every intention of riding Zack today, but since I worked last night and then after my ride on Chloe I was feeling rather tired. So I decided to work him in the round pen and then gave him a proper grooming. I plan on riding him tomorrow. I am thinking a better plan of riding is riding one of them one day and the other the next as I usually end up biting off more than I can chew, as it were. I always set lofty goals, and then as the hours tick by my body is saying, nope. You need to stop and get some rest! ;D

We are really bonding and he had a nice little workout in the round pen!
Silly boy, he really stretches his head sideways for a treat. I could take so many photos of these cute horses! I guess I already do! HAHA! ❀

What ever your plans may be I hope each and every one of you has a WONDERFUL Memorial Day. I know it’s true meaning is for our fallen heros, we shall never forget. EVER!

Thankful, grateful and indebted,

-Diana

    1. The trails all over this town are AMAZING! And I do feel safe as if there is a reason or something scary it’s super easy to get off and walk next to my horse. The trails are nice and wide. I’ve had to do that when training her, not much ruffles her feathers any more! Glad you enjoyed my post πŸ˜€Enjoy today, the hot days are coming for both of us. 😘❀️πŸ₯°
