Yup, that's me riding my new buddy, Preston! I am now taking riding lessons and loving every possible second of it. I do not think that anyone in the world could be more thrilled than me to be taking riding lessons.
After this lesson on Monday, I took great pleasure in brushing Preston and making him all kinds of pretty. I led him back out to the pasture to eat with his buddy Andrew...and the instant he stepped through the gate and I let him go, he laid down on his back and rolled around in the dirt happily. I think it was his way of showing his appreciation for me. I'm sure of it.
