The year of the horse

I always like New Year's Day, but this year I like it even more than usual because 2014 is the Year of the Horse.
I celebrated the occasion with a short ride on my new lease horse.
Prior to today, no one but Deb had ever ridden Mystyc.  Not surprisingly, we had a few awkward moments...
but I think we're going to be ok. 
After all, it's the Year of the Horse.  What could possibly go wrong?


  1. When I had a horse (1975-1979) she was a chunky solid bay with no white, just like this one. She was so good to me...

  2. She's such a cutie! Can't wait to see what she looks like with a summer coat!

  3. Get OFF that horse!

  4. Happy New Year Jenn! I'm looking forward to another year full of great photos :)

  5. Your Mom is not amused Jennifer :D You're going to have so much fun with Mystic!

    1. Yeah, I'm probably going to get another lecture next time I talk to her. Maybe it's a good thing that I live in a different state!

      And, yes! I am going to have so much fun with her. After nearly a year on rough gaited Rev, her trot felt like a DREAM. I'd forgotten that horses could be that comfortable!
