I went for a ride last week.
With KVTR member Barb and her mellow mare, Fannie (Pat is out of town).
We went west to the Upper Elk Heights trailhead, and did a two-hour loop on sandy footing amid the pines.
Whose ears are those?
Maddie: "It's me, Mom."
We had a nice mellow ride, with only a couple of minor spooks-in-place--nothing worse than before the unscheduled dismount of May. Though my tummy did a couple of little flips each time, we had a great "first time out" ride.
Thanks Barb. Thanks Fannie.
