Muddy Creek Meadows trail ride… | Horse-back riding

A weekend ago, Erynn (my 10-year-old daughter), Ally (my 20-year-old stepdaughter), and myself had a girls’ day out on an almost 5-hour trail ride through Pennsylvania.  It was an absolutely beautiful day!  There were 53 riders altogether – yes, 53!!!!   Here are some pictures I took that day while riding – Hey photogs — it was a true “shoot from the hip”.  I couldn’t look through the viewfinder, so I literally just clicked the shutter in full sweeps in all directions… here’s what I managed to get out of it…  this isn’t with my professional camera, I wouldn’t bring my professional camera out on something like this 😉  Also, our nightmare – shooting at high noon with a camera that doesn’t handle dynamic range very well… boy was it bright.

Ally (on left) did really great. She had a crash-course in riding that day only after two real riding lessons. She cantered for her first time as well as jumped for her first time. Erynn (on right) on Stormy.

True photographer’s child – hard to get her to look at the camera.
