Cat & Mouse~
Kathryn Taylor Fide
Slipping in rides between weather systems is getting to be something like a game of cat & mouse! Five Saddle-Up members met at Kathryn Taylor Equestrian Park for what was to be a faster paced ride. It looked like we might get wet when we left the trailer parking area, but as the morning turned to afternoon - we stayed dry. There was quite a lot of wind damage to the tops of the trees, several had been cut to keep the trails clear. For the amount of rain we've had - the trails were in amazingly good shape.
Riding along Novelty Hill Road
For being in such a heavily populated urban area, it's so great that there is a connected system of multipurpose trails, most through beautiful woods. The crossing above is one of several that we took, with long lines-of-sight to the crossing - it wasn't bad.It was Khari's first time down in this area; she took the barking dogs, bridges & weird objects really well. No spooks, but she preferred to follow :-) We covered just under 15-miles in 3 hours & 13 min. a really good pace for a really nice day.
