Here's a photo from a few days ago of a grandpa (on Freckles) and his grandson (on Pilgrim) who joined two other guests (on Jiggers and Charlie Cache) for a one-hour ride in the park. What a great group they were! Thanks for riding with us, everyone!
There's nothing better than a ride on a horse down a beautiful trail! Thanks for riding with Glen Valley Stables, everyone - we're glad to share our love of horses with you! Horse, from front to back, are Freckles, Texas, Rio and Traveller
Andria booked a ride yesterday as part of Jordan's birthday gift - riding a horse was just one of the cool things they did that day. Andria (on Freckles, in the front) is just 16 years old but we think she has the world's best gift-giving ideas! Both she and Jordan (on Traveller) had only ridden horses once before but they had a wonderful time. It was great seeing you in the saddle, kids!
And here's a photo taken a little bit after the short video. We hope to see you in the saddle again!
July and August are our busiest months, though if you look at our blog, you might think they're the slowest because there aren't quite so many posts as other months. But that's because we're busy in the saddle and don't get much time in the office - which is great! So here are a few photos from the past few weeks. Enjoy!
Here are a couple of friends who joined us for a ride. Thanks, girls! That's Pilgrim in the front and Rio in the back.
Here are some kids visiting from Hong Kong. That's the mom waving in the background! The two horses in the front are Pilgrim and Freckles, and then I can't see who it is until the lady in blue, who is riding Shine.
We sure love little girls who love horses! We're at a snack break (for the horses, anyway!) with Pilgrim and Freckles and a couple of very happy little girls!
Here's Texas taking care of a first-time rider and Rio bringing up the rear with a rider who has spent quite a bit of time in the saddle.
This is a really terrific family visiting from England. The girls could both ride and the dad was game so after we'd ridden all but 10 minutes of a 1.5-hour ride, the mom got off her horse and we took these guys for a run. From right to left, we've got Pilgrim, Freckles and then Texas. It's sure fun to go for a run from time to time! Thanks for riding with us, everyone!
When four little girls - all 8 and 9 years old - and a couple of moms come for a ride, all our guides and friends step in to help. It made for a big group! Lots of fun! The horses, from front to back, are Shine, Summer, Montana, Freckles... and then I can't tell....
Here are the guests at the end of the right without all the guides. Horses, from left to right, are Shine, Summer, Jiggers, Freckles, Pilgrim and Traveller. Thanks for celebrating with us, everyone!
Here are four happy riders from last week. The two in the middle are experienced riders from Japan and the woman in the front and the guy in the back are first timers who did really, really well. Thanks for riding with us, everyone! Horses, from front to back, are Freckles, Shine, Summer and Traveller (though the back three horses are hard to see!).
It was the end of the day on the BC Day long weekend when Corinne called to see if she could ride. And she could! Here she is on Summer, having a great time. Thanks for riding with us, Corinne!
Here's where we share photos and memories of some of our guests and the horses they get to call their own for an hour or two. Saddle up!
