Horseback Riding with the Bishop

Last weekend, my sister and her family were visiting.  We had previous plans to go riding horses at the Bishop's house and he said to bring them along.  So, here are some pics from that fun afternoon.
Emma was in Heaven. She actually stayed a few hours
after everyone else and brushed and burshed horses!
Tyler on his swift stallion of a horse! He actually fell off a
horse last summer and had a really sore arm for a couple
of weeks. What a brave guy to get back on!!

Aunt Boo led Emma's horse and when he
balked, she got a NASTY rope burn!

Chelsea bridling her Palomino.

Head 'em up! Move 'em out! RAWHIDE!!
We were quite a crew! It's a good thing everyone out in Springlake
owns livestock and was patient with us! ;)

Carson and Katrina.

Getting the horses ready for their saddles!

Quincey really wanted to ride with Daddy. 
Next time she will ride her own horse!
We saw some deer.

I was a lucky mama! I got to ride with Quincey, too!

Thanks Bishop! We will be back! We had a blast!!


  1. Looks like a root tootin' time!

  2. Wow, I can't believe Emma rode on her own, she's braver than I was when we rode with Bishop Ballard! Looks like a good time :-)

  3. I am so glad that I have family that enjoys riding horses. I would like to join you. I wonder if they have a horse who likes to eat bread like my Dixie Horse use to. Way to go Tyler....get back on that horse. Love Grandma Mathews
