As I mentioned earlier, my friends and I were all pumped for a weekend up north when we received the news that the cottage we rented no longer had electricity. So instead we headed out for some horseback riding on Saturday morning. I am not sure if I have mentioned this but I absolutely love horses and was very excited! It was a chilly yesterday morning but the ride was pleasant and eventful. Here are some pics.
Here I am getting on my horse named Penny.
One thing I loved about the ranch was that there were lots of dogs around playing.
My group and I heading out for our ride which lasted about 1.5 hours.
As you can see, Penny is a bit slower than the other horses. She was also very funny because she would stop randomly to chew on some grass. Apparently she is notorious for stopping along the way to eat!
The scenery was beautiful and I couldn't believe I was out horseback riding that morning. If you had asked me what I was going to be doing on Saturday I would not have thought I'd be horseback riding!
Here I am with Penny after the ride.
One of our instructors fell off her horse and was soaked in mud. Unfortunately another rider also fell off his horse. This is what I meant by eventful.
After the ride we all headed to downtown Oakville for lunch. I had this awesome prosciutto pizza topped with fresh basil. It was amazing!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. It goes by so fast :(
