Or so my niece Jillian informed me when we went for an evening trot through the Stanly County countryside. Jillian’s husband and family own Stalling Stables back in my hometown, so I convinced her to take us for a ride when we were home last week.
I’m thinking I need a riding outfit. (Always look the part.)

This little baby was only a week old!
We were literally just riding out in the country, through the woods like in the wild wild west (or so I imagined)
Night fell (apologies for the bad photos, but I only had my phone). Fireflies lit up the trail. And we trotted on.
If you’ve never been horseback riding, it’s definitely a really fun adventure—whether out in the country like me or at a luxury dude ranch.
