12.02.17 Salt Trail

12.02.17 Salt Trail

I’m liking the Princess Syndrome.  Saturday morning I loaded my gear, went to the dump to drop the trash, then showed up for my ride.  Debra wheeled in with the horses right on time.  It was pretty cool, but not enough to be uncomfortable at all.  I took my...

11.25.17 Magna Vista Farm Ride

Good early, crisp morning ride.  We arrived with plenty of time to get ready. Sigh of relief, I hate rushing.  The farm is beautiful.  Although I had been to the farm many years ago, this was my first time riding there.  I vaguely remember hauling in / out of there a...

Hot and Humid 07.15.17

Of course that description “hot and humid” describes just about anything happening in the middle of July in southwest Virginia, but that doesn’t make it any less applicable to our lovely ride.  Pryley continues to do well, and help Debra with her leg...

IRONWOMAN RIDE 06.07.13

IronWoMan – Woman of Stihl.  No, not me; that would be the other one.  I had to wait and hold Clem (Delicate Flare and all) while she cleared brush out of the trail so Winston – Pocket Pony could get up the trail.  She’s pretty good at it too, but...

Tri-State Draft Horse & Mule Sale 04.27.13 Results

Cool and breezy it was for the sale on Saturday, April 27, 2013.  I thought it was an exceptionally good turnout.  It seemed to me that the flow was better than ever this year.  A timely start led into a pretty steady flow throughout the day.  There were a few...
