Another beautiful day for a long ride on a beautiful horse! Jose was awesome again! I love Jose!
Today we rode up into the foothills of the Owyhee Mountains. It was cool and breezy - perfect for the horses (and me).
Steve got a great series of us galloping by him. Jose was following Finneas and August, but he'd stopped to watch Rhett and Mac behind him in the distance (he knew it was them and not just other horses). He watched, and made sure everything was good with them (since he's the Owyhee Social Director), then eventually took off to catch up with Finneas and August. It started as a canter... then we both had a wild hair and it became a gallop. I Love Jose!
We took it easy on loop one, and easier on the rockier loop 2, but Jose was cruising on the last loop home. He was stronger today than yesterday. It's an amazing feeling. I'm not as tired today as I was yesterday either.
Day 2 down, 3 more to go!
