So Much Fun

We went on a trail ride at Park City Mountain Resort. It was so much fun. The horse guy hadn't had very many customers for several days because it has rained every day for two weeks here, so he was willing to give us a deal. I love a deal. So that was one positive.
Ian was pretty nervous since the last time he was on a horse, he was three years old. But the horse guy promised he had the perfect horse for him. And she was. Thunder was her name, but she was extremely gentle and docile and obedient and Ian had a great time. Positive number two.
I was pretty nervous, too. It's been years since I was on a horse, and I usually ride in a fenced pasture, so riding up a mountain side was a new thing for me. It was really fun. We went through pine trees and aspen groves and had to duck under tree limbs. But the horses weren't nervous or skittish. We're all ready to be horse owners again. Ian says he wants to have a horse and name it Nellie so he can say, "Whoa, Nellie!"


  1. That Ian's a funny kid! Thanks for posting and thanks for letting me know where that postings going on :)

  2. Hilarious! I want a horse named Nellie now too. I'm a bit fearful of horses cuz they are sooo strong and powerful. I've never ridden one, but I've been up close to a few. So I have to admit that this looks fun . . . and also a bit terrifying. :) But you do make it sound like a beautiful peaceful ride, so who knows--maybe I will have to take up horseback riding too.
