Outdoor Wednesday - Outstanding in his Field!

Peruvian Paso Stallion
Multiple Champion of Champions Performance
High Point Performance & Versatility Winner

On February 14th while visiting Kelly in Buelton, I had the privilege of riding Fastigo one of her gorgeous champion stallions.  He has been given the nickname of  "Tigs" and I think it fits him perfectly. 
It had been some time since I had been in the saddle;
and I was a little apprehensive about just getting up onto a horse. 
However, I did it and had a wonderful time! 

 At 17 years "Tigs" is considered a senior and he is such a gentleman and is in top physical condition.  
I felt very comfortable riding him, I guess because we are both considered seniors these days.   
However, he's a fined tuned professional, and I'm sure I frustrating him a little,
 but he was very tolerant.

Thanks "Tigs"....I enjoyed the ride immensely.

Well, I feel great that I rode the horse...and as soon as the weather gets better here in Northern California,
I plan on doing some more riding.

Just beautiful! If I was younger I'd take up horseback riding. It's something I always wanted to do. Sadly, I don't think I could get on, stay on, and survive the pain! LOL!
