Photo Fridays – Hatfield Farm, Nova Scotia

My family has made a tradition of going horseback riding at Hatfield Farm in Hammonds Plains, NS each summer. It’s a guided ride, about an hour or so long, through trails near the farm. No prior riding experience is required, and it’s a great time!

Hatfield Farm is located about 20-minutes outside of Halifax, and has a variety of attractions including horseback riding, a petting zoo, and much more. Definitely worth the trip if you’re ever in the area.

A lone pony (I think this is a pony, although I could be entirely wrong) near the start of our ride.

In hindsight (get it?) I probably should have been in the front of the group instead of in the back. Oh well!

We couldn’t have had better weather. Beautiful, clear day!

When our ride started, I yelled forward to my brother, “Hey Logan! Why didn’t the pony want to do karaoke?” “Why?..” he asked begrudgingly, anticipating the almost certainly terrible joke awaiting him. “Because he was a little horse!” I said. He wasn’t amused.

This goat was incredibly photogenic.

This lama was less photogenic.
