I Rode A Horse, Y'all

If you want to read the official Pioneer Woman/Ranch post go HERE.

There was a lot of talk about horse riding before we went to Oklahoma.  Ree kept saying we would ride horses, but I just kept telling myself that we probably wouldn't have time.  I really doubted it would really happen.  Well...

It happened.

A lot of folks standing around looking at horses
Of course, it was totally optional, but how could I pass up a chance to ride a horse.  Let me remind you that this was no ordinary horse. It was on of Ree's horses, on Ree's ranch.  So of course I had to ride!

Not their best angle

"Oh, don't mind me...I'm just over here eating.  I'm not really in the mood for a ride right now."

It should be noted that I took these pictures while riding the horse.  It's a wonder I didn't fall off.
Giddy up!

It was such a fun adventure!
