Down on the farm

After my ride along the beach a few weeks ago, I was keen to go riding again. This time we stayed on the farm because one of the other girls from work came along too and was a bit nervous around the horses. We rode around an arena for a little while until Jacinta was comfortable, then took the horses out onto the farm for a bit of a ride. I rode the horse Lauren rode last time, I had wanted to ride Jack last time; I fell in love with him as soon as I met him, but Lauren wanted to ride him because of his name, he has the same name as her dog.
 

Jack was great, he would stop still each time I wanted to take a photo and then when I had taken the photo, I would hit the button to close my camera and he would start walking again.
 

After our ride, we enjoyed a wonderful late lunch out in the courtyard, where we sat until the sun started to sink behind the horizon. I left then and headed back home. On my way, I stopped at a popular fishing spot to take a few more photos, this time of the dusk sky over the water. It was another perfect ending to another perfect Tassie day.  I hope you enjoy. :)
