I'm extra behind on these! The Saturday before and the Saturday after the show I met up with some friends at the Katy Trail - Mokane Trailhead for some easy, low-key miles.
|These photos went in backwards but ones from the second ride went in correctly, so I don't even know anymore lol. |
|Spooky kid's bike thing just... abandoned in the parking lot?|
|Ponying for extra mileage! :)|
|Spooky kids bike from the beginning of the ride lol. |
|It was a lovely day! Unseasonably cool and NOT miserable.|
The next ride had a little bit of overlap from horses/riders, and some new faces! Trigger came along this time for a friend who wanted to ride but her horse was temporarily out of commission.
Both days we rode as far as horses are allowed on this section of the trail (to Steedman) and then back to the trailhead at Mokane for about 8 miles. The ride after the show we had a lovely picnic lunch -- one friend brought sandwiches, one brought chips/pretzels, one brought a salad with produce from her garden (and also thin mints because she was cleaning out her freezer lol) and we just sat around enjoying a nice breeze in the shade and gabbed horses! I'm so grateful for our local horse community and friends who are happy to be flexible and explore the local trail options!
Looks like so much fun! I'm a bit jealous of the weather too. I've also decided Ruby would be a stellar eventer too since she's fancy dressage horse one weekend and trail pony the next... so if she ever vanishes...ReplyDelete
I took her to a hunter pace once and she LOCKED ON to a bunch of XC jumps once she figured out the game lol. If you were bored it's probably in the November '17 or '18 archives, it was a Halloween hunter pace 🤣 got some fun photos of her popping over stuff!Delete
She's so game!!! What a good girl!!Delete
They both look like lovely days! I need to get braver so I can trail ride with friends!ReplyDelete
I hope you do, I love it so much! I like competing and lessoning and love spending time with friends doing those things too but there's something about a laid-back trail ride that just soothes my soul ♥️Delete
