Seventy degrees, clear blue skies, and an All Saints' Day on Monday - sounds like a good day to ride horses! Taking to the arena to avoid the multitudes of Midland mountain bikers whizzing off on the trails, riders worked on form and cantered over caveletti.

To celebrate a fine Fall riding season, the group feasted on donuts while getting the horses ready for games in the arena. Students demonstrated newly acquired skills by racing around standing poles (pole bending), delicately balancing an egg on a spoon while riding, and riding at a walk, trot, and canter with a dollar held under their leg to see how long they could sit still and quiet. Goodbye, Fall Riders! Remember to ride on your half-holidays!  See photos.
