Winter in the northwest

Out on a bike/run in Poulsbo, along Liberty Bay. This is a great place for biking, jogging or walking. it's picturesque and has a broad shoulder.

It doesn’t look like winter in the rainy Northwest, does it? Well, not every day is rainy! This day was really nice – the sun is warm here, whenever it comes out, but when the sky is clear you know it’s cold!

Me out on Emmy, the mare I have been borrowing to ride each week!

I have been having SUCH fun riding and hitting the trails most weeks. Emmy loves to get outside of the barn, too. Funny how horses spook less on the trails where there’s far more weird stuff going on. The only hazard is getting to the trails from the road, but I’m managing to do that with more confidence, too.

And my awesome instructor, Janet Grunbok, who owns Whitethorn Farm. Definitely contact her if you want to get back into riding - dressage is way more work than I thought, and excellent training for anyone who wants to develop some serious horsemanship and confidence in the saddle.
