I'm very happy with my boarding barn and its ownership, professionalism, and management (of which I am a part). My horses are healthy and content.
My husband's new horse is a dreamboat. He did a fabulous simple lead change for me on Sunday. I see lots of great rides in their future! DH remarked this weekend he really wants to learn how to be a horseman. His words. Ahhh... made my heart sing!
I'm happy it hasn't really gotten horribly cold here. At least not yet.
As much as I hate getting up early, I love getting my horses turned out and stalls cleaned before heading to work. I'm also enjoying seeing the progress in my newest OTTB. I gave one of my others a few months off after show season. Now were lightly hacking around. He is my horse of a lifetime. I can't help but smile every time I ride him.

Heading out on the trail on a beautiful day with great scenery- just me and one of my horses. It's even better if we never see anyone else out there during our ride and if we get to stop for lunch next to the river. I had a ride like this the other day and we saw a couple of bald eagles while we were having lunch

Being in the midst of a once in a lifetime experience: Florida for 2 months, riding 5x a week with a very good dressage coach. We did the whole enchilada - condo on the beach, horse 20 minutes away, brought my husband and my part time job with me. We've had great weather and lots of fun experiences besides the horse thing. It's heaven.
Don't know if I'll ever get to do this again, but for right now - I wake up with a smile on my face every day.
My new horse. Took a gamble on a young, green freebie, and things are going pretty well so far. Also my been-there-done-that older gelding, who is not as sound as he once was, but who is just plain fun to be around. I leave the barn smiling every night. In fact I'm smiling right now thinking of both of them!
Watching my 2 granddaughters riding a pony that I rescued many years ago. When I purchased him I only wanted a studly pony gelding to live with my mares to get them in the mood. He is a small and feisty enough to hold his own while smart enough to not mess with the big girls. If I was looking for a pony to be ridden I never would have purchased him. He took a while and decided that life wasn't so bad. This pony ended up with many Championships in the Hunters over the years, went to Pony Finals this year and now is teaching my granddaughters to ride. It doesn't only happen in movies.

Having a sweet green horse to ride after not riding for over a year. One of the most wonderful Christmas presents I have ever gotten -- my friend letting me ride her young colt. And the greenie being a good boy!
