I stopped by the nearby ranch to inquire about riding, instead I got offered a job & go along on the carriage outing into the mountains, just because. Have I mentioned that I love Montana & the fabulous people?!! A very tempting offer too, horses in the Montana mountains! #lonemountainranch #wildwest #thisisliving #horses #horsesarehappiness
A very good way to start the morning....all the right smells, sounds, feels and kinds of company! A warm cup of coffee on a cool morning in a warm barn smelling of horses, no tourists, just the wranglers and me...I am in paradise. #bigskycountry #lonemountainranch #horses #wildwest
Out in the mountains with Elliot & Pocket, and I am loving every moment of it! Put me in a mountain meadow at a fast lope on a game horse in enjoyable company & I'm about as happy as I'll ever be. Can I go again right now, please?!!

We stopped at the summit hut to take it all in, the gas lit room and trestle table with antler chandelier.
Can I just say using horses to get somewhere, while bruising is just one of the coolest feelings. (I am out of practice and we were hauling across the mountains! Happily Elliot got that I was all in and I think he enjoyed having an enthusiastic fairly capable rider on the last day of the season.) I find it somehow so satisfying. It is yet another way to be really present. You can't tune out or eat a breakfast sandwich, or your vehicle will wander off into the bushes or scrape you off on a tree.
This is living!
