Trail ride before hitting the road

We did manage to get a trail ride in yesterday before I embarked on my latest work adventure.

I won't say the horses were calm, quiet trail horses. Heck, if I said that you'd all wonder what horses we were riding!

No, they were both very bouncy and up. The blue tarp covering the pile of hay bales was fine one way, definitely not fine the other way. (Split horse brains, gotta love it.)

We went over bridges, maneuvered around dogs, pedestrians, strollers, etc., and had a wonderful ride--despite the bounciness and occasional Thoroughbred tantrum. Nothing in particular, just Bar wanting to try (or not try) something his way. Or be in front of Lena, or... well, maybe it's better not to guess.

And now I'm sitting in a hotel room in Arizona, waiting for the iron to heat up so I can de-wrinkle my supposedly wrinkle-free slacks. Yeah. And I have a bridge to sell you, too!

No horse sightings, yet, though I hear there is a team roping event the night we leave. Oh, well.

Glad you had a ride before you left. Wish I was sitting in Arizona about now too, it's snowing again here.
