1. It was a beautiful day for a horseback ride — upper 50s to lower 60s; sun shine; blue sky — so I availed myself of the opportunity. I went out into some local woods for an hour and a half of constant activity. I let my horse pick the pace, and he chose to trot almost the entire hour and a half, with some cantering and running thrown in. There were times when I pulled him into a walk because of the terrain or overhanging vines. My horse made the choice to walk a few times, too. 2. I saw two deer while I was out. Nice. 3. We rode down a road we’ve never been on before. We ran back up a dirt road (my horse always runs up this particular road); at one point we had to go under a fallen tree (from Hurricane Ike last September). The video on my cell was set to cut off at 30 seconds, so the video cut off right as we were going under the tree.
