The further adventures of Pepsi.

I have a couple of photo updates, although the second one (also horse related) may not arrive until tomorrow.

Today I took Pepsi out for a ride. Just a few random phone photos:

I love the random beam of evening sunlight on the path ahead of us. This is the bridleway between the two villages, btw. The only off-road part of our ride.

She stopped to grab a tree to eat after we'd thundered through the brook and leapt up the bank on the other side. It's hungry work being a pony!

Oh, and a rare photo of me and the tiny mare. Her nummnah is new, it's pale green and fleecy with little green hearts all over it. :3 She's looking disgruntled because I was making her pose for the camera, instead of eat the grass, which is what she wanted to do. I'd also forgotten my riding boots, so I had to borrow my cousin's (two sizes too big XD) jod boots and dig out my ancient chaps.

We met Pepsi's arch-enemy while out riding, too: a tractor. And not only was it a tractor, it was a big tractor. A big tractor with a big trailer. We had nowhere to go as there was only a narrow verge and a hedge, so I just drove her forward as best I could and hoped for the best.

Anywho, she spun a perfect 180 in one fluid movement, then stood trembling with her legs braced apart while I stroked her neck and made ridiculous baby-talk until the unspeakable terror had passed. I was quite impressed, to be honest. My 27-year-old mare can still turn on a sixpence, even with me on top. :3

I love these pictures, they are brilliant. Beautiful light for taking pictures and a beautiful pony to be riding while they pictures are taken...
