Monday morning my friend Julie and I rode into the Los Angeles National Forest from our stable in Lake View Terrace. As you can see from the parched condition of the park, there's been no rain since December! Despite the unseasonably warm weather, the horses still have their heavy winter coats, so | had expected Bailey (the horse I am riding) to be pokey. But slow was not what he had in mind. I spent the second half of our ride doing my best to keep him from realizing his dream of running like Secretariat!

Music is by Janelle Monáe's "Tightrope" which I definitely do not own by love nonetheless.
