There's nothing quite like a brisk walk through piles of leaves so yellow they're practically flourescent...

Look at my little equestrian! She loves my mom's horse, Onyx. And he loves it when the little kids go to ride him cuz he gets off WAY easy! Corinne is still only halter-led around and only at a walk (though she begs to trot!).
