Day 57. No better way to spend a Friday evening than with an obliging horse and a supportive friends at a perfect venue. Northwest Equestrian Center is one of the most beautiful equestrian properties in Thurston County. Expansive skyline, evergreen trees, riverfront, and acres and acres of horse playground just minutes from my own neighborhood! Enjoy these pictures from Solar’s cross-country schooling session and first time in a water jump. VIDEO clips and commentary are featured in this follow-up post.
