Full "blue" moon ride

I always wanted to do a nightly moon ride. I tried it once before but the moon was not bright enough.
Tonight after I did my chores it was already 9.30. It was dark, but it was not at the same time.
Beautiful silver light, over the fields and the barn.
I could resist and got Jake out of the pasture and went for a ride. He enjoyed it just as much as I did. He is such a happy horse.
When we headed back in between the field fog was rising up and glistering in the moon light . It was so serene absolutely beautiful. I tried to take photos but that didn't workout. I wish I could share the beautiful silver light.

Goodnight, sweet dreams

  1. I bet it was lovely. I went on an organized moonlight ride with a bunch of rambunctious guys and gals and their gaited horses once, and it was so beautiful and so much fun. Not buggy or muggy. Great summertime adventure. I am so glad you were able to experience this and I can tell you are thankful and appreciative of the opportunity.

  2. I rode Linus in moonlight in the winter once. It was a pretty short ride but probably one of the most magical ones I've ever had. The moon reflecting off the snow was so beautiful. You put so much more trust into your horse after dark because he can see better than you! Love that you took the opportunity to do it!

  3. Thank you ladies, I really enjoyed it it was so serene.
