DSCN5583 This year 16 members and friends meet at 10:00 in the Celebration park trail parking area. It was a sunny day with at time a brisk breeze blowing.DSCN5593 With Laurie, Linda and Janine leading the way we headed east along the river to the trail head. From there we had the choice of a number of different routes, making each ride here unique. IMG_3390 After about five miles of wandering through house size bolder and bowls of sand we stopped at an old coral for a lunch break. This gave everyone a chance to stretch their legs after winter month of not riding. With their heavy winter coats the horses enjoyed the break, getting a chance to cool down. IMG_3392 From the coral the group looped south and rode a river trail back to the trailers. It total the group rode ten miles in a bit over three hours. ?????????
