Horse Back Riding

On Tuesday, the day before we left Salt Lake City for Minnesota, we all decided to go to Antelope Island for some horse back riding.  We would have ridden up the high hills but were prevented due to the movement of a large buffalo herd.

Drew looks at the horse that he will be riding.

Stirrups are being adjusted for Drew.

Here is my husband, with his camera, mounted on his white horse.

We are lined-up, ready to ride.

Rachel was too young to ride, but she wanted to see what it was like.
