Slowly Becoming a Rider

I had the privilege of going on a little trail ride with Micaela and a few of our friends last weekend. I think in the past 2 and 1/2 years of marriage, I've ridden a horse 5 or 6 times, for a grand total of 8 or 9 times in my life. 

Prior to hitting the trail, Micaela sent me out to "warmup" the horse and get familiar with her. I've watched a few her lessons and sat in on her working with a horse, so I just tried to apply what I had absorbed over the last few months. It was really enjoyable and I felt so confident that I was able to capture some moments while on horseback and on the trail.
