This picture was taken at Cutty’s Resort in Colorado. They offer horseback riding, and is by far the best horse back rid I have been on. Most places take you on a mainly flat well-traveled trail. Here the trail was well traveled but not flat. We crossed streams, uphill and down hills and ducked under tree limbs. I don’t know if it was the advanced trail but we certainly didn’t just trot along, we had a great time navigating the backcountry on the hour-long ride.
The horse in the picture is named Blue. When we were done, I told her to pose for a picture so she lifted up her foot and held it long enough for me to snap a shot. Coincidence or a well-trained horse, I don’t know, but I think it is a great shot nonetheless.
