I love everything about being in the barn. The smell of the leather in the tack room. The sweetness of the hay. All the sounds the horses make as they shuffle in their stalls and poke their noses out to see who has entered their realm, I’m sure hoping for a chance at an apple or a muzzle rub. It was a beautiful fall day. The sun was warm, the air was crisp, and the foliage beautiful. I was looking forward to getting out on the trails and enjoying the scenery.
