Don't just sit there and look pretty

These are the some of the horses I ride for two weeks every year at the H. F. Bar Ranch in Saddlestring, Wyoming.  They spend their winters grazing freely in the Bighorn Mountains. I've been thrown from a horse like this out there and landed in a hospital with a concussion and a lot of bruises and abrasions, faced myself and got back on a horse the next day to ride again.  I've also had to make some tough decisions about riding up steep mountainsides and along narrow cliffs. It's a place to enjoy scenery but also to test your limits and see what you have. Definitely not a place for sitting pretty.

I'm happy to enter the HORSES into smith kaich jones' Sitting Pretty blogcall at Emma Tree.
