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!
