Saturday Excursion

Saturday was a beautiful day in the area. I had the pleasure of attending an all day Trail Ride de-spooking clinic by Pam Tanner, a local well known horse trainer. It was in Rockingham County only a 15 minutes away. We spent 6 hours on the ground building trust and respect, then confronting the "big bad boogieman who comes in many forms and topping it off practicing on the trail. It was an eventful day.

This is the  blue monster we had to walk through. We were also faced with balloons, tarps and mattresses to walkover in preparation for .... see below.

The trails were gorgeous and here we are preparing to cross the creek.


  1. What a wonderful trip you had! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Looks like fun- well, fun for you, that is! I had some bad horse rides with Young Life that still to this day have stuck with me! Glad you enjoyed your day.
