Galloping Through the Snowy Fields by Aliciaby Embrace Country Life on 01/29/14
Every night for the past week, I have ridden my horse Sassy around the perimeter of our property. With the extremely cold temperatures, due to the Polar Vortex, I have to make sure that Sassy doesn't sweat or catches a cold. With Sassy's winter coat and my Carhartt coat, snow pants, boots, gloves, face mask, and hat, we are prepared for the snow. I like riding bareback better than riding with a saddle so I only put her bridle on. We start out by walking to some trees by our house and cantering around them like barrels. After, we walk to our pond in the center of our property. My favorite part is when we gallop up to the barn at full speed. Sassy loves galloping and needs little encouragement from me to gallop.
