I met with friends yesterday for our Halloween ride, Saturday afternoon and all night it hammered down, I was so smug that I had rugged Jess up so she wouldn't look like she'd been dragged through a hedge :) When I finally ventured out to sunshine on Sunday morning I was relieved. Just before I tacked up I took her rug off, then remembered I needed to go turn my water off so left her loose and went for all of 2 mins to do it, by the time I came back she had rolled :eek::rolleyes:
This might not look very muddy, it was more wet and sandy :p

Anyway I rode down to the next village to meet old friends and some joining us for the first time (I organized this as part of my local horse riders group, I try to organize 1 social a month) and we had some great costumes, I went as a zombie but one of the ladies joked I looked more like a bag lady :D It was all a bit last minute as I just haven't felt up to organizing much as I didn't know until sat afternoon if I was going to get to ride (the saddle thing). We also had a couple of witches, a black cat, a werewabbit, a vampire bride, and a skeleton :D

We crossed a couple of roads and rode alongside 1, we didn't half get some funny looks :D
We stopped at the pub for a drink before parting company and heading home, 4 hours after departing Jess and I finally got home, it was a long day but the weather was perfect and the company outstanding :D It was a pretty goo test for the new saddle too, she went ok but she never really objects, so I am anxiously waiting to give her back a poke tonight and see how she feels.

That looks like so much fun, but, how come you’ve got folk in short sleeves? It was 6 degrees here on Sat!
I wish we had local rides that I could join in. :(

Because she's nuts, she was also blooming frozen by the time we got to the pub so had hot chocolate instead of a pint :p
We had very few here, maybe 1 or 2 a year I could hack to and then have the privilege of paying to ride where I normally ride anyway, that's when I decided to start organizing them, they are non-official, everyone is responsible for themselves and their horse, free social gatherings only open to locals. I've made some really great friends doing it :)

Lovely photos Jessey. Especially love Jess looking rather pleased with herself after her roll!
