Amanda Hodges with my horse Bud!                        It was such a beautiful day in the valley.                 An amazing ride in Eb's Trails in the Nesbitt Forest near Duck Lake, SK.  We
I’m a new rider, and trusty Bud takes care of me,     We climbed some pretty big hills.                            call our group "never beetles, always fearless". I'm riding Jango (second white
as we often ride alone. ❤️                                         My horse "Mischief" and I are in the back.              horse from the left).

We ride this gorgeous trail a couple times a week.    It was our first time encountering hills that size.
It’s in the Nisbet forest, North of Prince Albert.           She truly surprised me.  We're a good team.

My first trip out into the southwestern Saskatchewan hills to move cattle with Leo Shining Max (Drifter).     I didn't think I'd be able to enter the photo contest as I hadn't ridden all
We had a great morning gathering and moving cattle, and enjoying the scenery.                                          summer... 2020 has been a rough year, starting with the loss of my horse...
                                                                                                                                                                         but I’m blessed to have friends who helped me find my way back I  had

                                                                                                                                                                         many many offers to ride this summer but my heart was broken.  After
                                                                                                                                                                         much encouragement, my friend, knowing that I needed to do this even
                                                                                                                                                                         though I didn't want to, got me back on a horse.  You can see by the smile
                                                                                                                                                                         on my face, my friend was right.  This is me (Edie Koski) and her horse
                                                                                                                                                                         Mr. Watson. It felt good to be back in the saddle!  I'm now looking forward
                                                                                                                                                                         to finding my next equine partner!
