I created the collage below from photos taken during some of my trail rides down in San Acacia, New Mexico earlier this past year.
I have to credit quite a bit of my self-confidence, sense of adventure, and new skills to my time spent riding the horses at Acacia Riding Adventures.
I cantered through wide canyons, trotted up and down steep rocky hills, explored narrow side canyons, galloped across sandy arroyos, and splashed in the Rio Grande
But as much fun as I had in San Acacia riding someone else’s horses, it was time to get back on my own mare’s wide, comfy back again and transfer the self-confidence, sense of adventure, and newfound skills to riding my own horse in new and exciting places.
My Apache Mare was getting bored just hanging out at home while I rode other horses. She wanted to head out on the trails with me, too.
So, that’s just what we did.
The horses that I was riding, in the photos below, are Splendor, the grey mare, and Ranger, the bay gelding.
