Took today’s beautiful weather to heart, and spent the day outside; first—a run, then several hours with my girlfriend at the annual Red Hills Horse Trials (where the Clydesdales made an appearance!), then the second game of today’s double header against Boston College.

All in all a day well spent.

Both horse and rider survived the fall—with the horse appearing un-injured and the rider appearing to have (possibly) minor injuries to feet/ankles/legs; many spectators and people associated with the event remarked on how challenging the cross country course was this year

Loved this tight crop of horse and rider clearing a jump
