After a week of rain, clouds and raw, fall weather, Saturday was a gift: high 50s, sunny and perfect for hunting. Friday I debated which horse to hunt (nice problem!) and decided that since I hadn’t ridden Freedom since Tuesday, he would be too much of a handful. Zelda was pretty feisty too — to the point where I wondered if today would be the day she bucked me off.
But I underestimated her. She was great. I’ve been easing her into jumping while hunting and she was fabulous. I couldn’t stop grinning.
Here are some of the photos from the day — and also a short video that I took to capture the sound of hunting. Our huntsman was calling the hounds in at the end of the run and you can hear them in the background.
