Cattle Drive!

Lately I've been really missing horseback riding. I called my instructor, but the lessons are only in the ring...there's no potential for trail riding. I decided to wait a few days to decide if that's what I really want (lessons are a little pricey). As I was checking my facebook yesterday, I spotted an ad that said "wine tasting on horseback near Santa Barbara." Since I have a four day weekend coming up, I checked out the website and it looks amazing. It turns out that they need at least 2 people to do the wine tasting tour...darn...none of my friends can make it (most of them aren't interested in horseback riding anyway). And a gorgeous cowboy hasn't been in the picture since I left Oregon : (

Then he mentioned that I could come along for a cattle drive. Huh? They have cattle in Santa Barbara? (Well, it's actually closer to wine country). Woo hoo. Oh my gosh. Yep, that's was what I was thinking. Turns out that the guide is a former polo player and just started the business. And...um, he's very very handsome. Just when I thought it was going to be another beach weekend at home, I got restless and found this opportunity. Gotta love it...I've always said you have to make life happen : ) So this cowgirl's headed up to SB Friday morning...gettin' out of the city and back on a horse. The solo spontaneous adventures continue! Wish me luck : )

I grew up on a farm and I had the most wonderful arabian horse for two years. I was SO sad when she died but she was old and lived a long, good life. I miss riding horses SO much. I used to love riding through the trails bareback! My dad always made me ride bareback so for the first two years I had her I only ever rode bareback, it wasn't until I started doing gymkhana's that I started using a saddle (western). Aww, thanks for bringing back good memories for me with this post :-)

Good Luck! I wish I could say I'm jealous, but I'm not really a horse person. So i'm glad it's you and not me. Hope you have fun!!
