It was lovely to reconnect with Mara B this afternoon! We had an adventurous arena experience right away. A cherry picker truck was in there and Dan was installing new LED lightbulbs. I’m thrilled because it was distracting when the lights were on because of the loud buzzing sound they made. The horses had a fun time watching the action.

And what a superb Saturday for a jaunt with Jennifer and Bella. We had excellent winter riding conditions and enjoyed the winter beauty.

An excellent horse/pals/barn day.

Mara Moments- Helen’s Healing Equine The.. by Maramomentshorsetime - 3d ago

I’m missing Mara B and our connection time together, so I’m wondering if she may be missing me?

I’m wondering about things while I walk the beach and see new sights.

I wondered what this group out on the beach was doing, so I asked and learned that they were having a swim team practice. I also took a different seat (rather than my saddle) and wondered how far across to Mexico?

The beach has been a good location for wondering, to be curious and to marvel at the beauty of the ocean. I’m missing Mara but also trying out the concept of looking with an ‘appreciative eye’ here as I try to do when Mara B and I are out riding and looking for photos to share and to post for you. I do know I love the winter beach, it’s quiet, peaceful, has muted soft colors and offers a special solitude.

I kissed Mara B goodbye and left her to relax, watch the back field and have fun with her girlfriend Spice for a few days.

We all deserve a change of routine and some down time, so I’m riding with Joe this week, while Mara is enjoying her own time “off.”

Here are a few highlights from my walks to share.

Birds and fun, creative decorations!

Mara was pleased to see Jay this afternoon.

Then we met up with Suzy Q, Mara’s fancy Paint lookalike in the indoor arena. Greg and Suzy Q were very pleasant, however Mara did not win Miss Congeniality.

Mara did however enjoy her Saturday grooming, nibble and warmup time with us and we did enjoy her. Because we love her so.

Mara and I thought the sun was going to peak out this afternoon for our ride time! We were delighted because we have had such a long stretch of gray days this month.

Even though the temps were cold, with low winds and my face mask on we did ride out, Mara was great but the sun went back into hiding for our spin around.

Coming back from walking around the back soybean field we captured this ‘creative’ shot in the equipment storage lot. I guess it’s a picture of a real snow blanket.

And the sun did shine on my drive home from the barn!

Holly and her owner Leah joined us on a wonderful snow ride this afternoon! It was really beautiful, we looped the fields and rode up to and around the cow pasture (apple orchard).

Frozen apples now hang as ornaments.

Mara and Holly were happy to be out stretching their legs while the riders loved the quiet, peaceful scenery.

Today’s post is extra long, however I also want to share the following article from today’s Wall Street Journal! I’m grateful to see this and am sharing a paragraph from the article.

Mara B and I do believe in “horse therapy” so reading about the topic in today’s WSJ was validating and exciting. Thanks for riding with us!

Jay and I had a ‘warm’ visit with Mara this afternoon. When we arrived snow was just starting and continued to fall throughout our barn time!

Mara B liked to have time in the indoor arena with us, a chance to eat some hay and Jay’s deluxe grooming treatment. Then when we returned her to the paddock the snow was very steady and beautiful.

Welcome December.

Mara and I rode out this afternoon with both Brutus and Bo in tow. Very fun to follow them and to watch them go in and out of the woods ahead of us.

When I was a young rider my favorite barn dog was named Jumbo and he rode miles with us. Today’s ride reminded me of Jumbo and the fun of trail riding with good dogs along.

Here’s the field side of Mara’s paddock, her horse friends were relaxing this afternoon when we returned home.

The last day of November provided us with a delightful ride.

Our pup Lindy B had a rare visit to the barn with me today!

Mara was calm and respectful of Lindy. Lindy was quite thrilled to be visiting Mara, and the barn cats.

Both of my sweet gals tried hard to pose for today’s post!

I enjoyed having them together.
