Riding Lessons and More in Central Virginia

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  Out here in rural Virginia, fall means the start of hunting season...but for Team EKF, that doesn't mean trying to bag a buck.  Instead, we clean ourselves up and head out to chase Monsieur Reynard, the fox.  Last week near Free Union, Dr. Martha and Kelly enjoyed the meet on Henry and Chubbs.  The weather was beautiful, and we had a perfect mixture of hair-raising up- and downhill gallops and creek crossings, combined with checks in lovely spots with gorgeous views of Buck Mountain.
Apres hunt, the horses were snugged up to stay comfortable, while the two-leggeds enjoyed a bountiful buffet breakfast.  Kelly noticed that her picture accurately captures each horse's personality:  Henry smiles for the camera, while Chubbs keeps his muzzle buried in the alfalfa!
