I'd Rather Be Trail Riding

I have pictures to share and posts to write, but alas, I cannot find the cord to my camera.   Maybe if I did some Spring cleaning at home, I'd find the cord.  But I'd rather be trail riding. 

Just got back from a lovely three hour ride, winding through pine trees, hoping I wouldn't lose a knee cap in the tight spots or poke an eye out on a low branch.  That is the challenge of riding a draft in the woods.  But it was a great ride and we saw some new things on the trail ... like tents.

While we were out riding in the forest, a cub scout camp-out sprung up along both sides of the trail leading back to the parking lot.  So we rode by tents, and camp chairs, and wagons, and of course ... cub scouts running and screaming all over the place.  It was great exposure for Misty and me.

Hope you all are doing well.  I really need to catch up on your blogs.  I'm sorry.  I don't have much time to be online.  My day job keeps me very busy and then there are evening barn chores to be done before I collapse into bed.  Any spare time I can find, well, I know you'll understand ... I'd rather be trail riding.

  1. I'm getting the trail riding itch something fierce! Estes will go up to my parents' next weekend and I can't wait! I love having her so near me, but there aren't any forest trails here to ride and I'm getting twitchy.

  6. I know the feeling. We would all rather be involved in our hobbies and interests rather than most other things.

  7. I understand about not finding time to check out others blogs. I am trying to do while I have a few minutes. I too would rather be riding, If I had a horse that was ridable. So instead I do a lot of petting and grooming, as well as playing with dogs and cats. And the garden is demanding a lot of time right now. Where did those minutes go to?
