Lord Hill Ride~
Lord Hill GPS
Lord Hill Regional Park - I hadn't ridden there in years! Since the day - Liz - you will remember the day - when you, Butch & I went riding. Don't want to even think about how many years that's been. Strange too, since it's just a 20-mile drive from home! With the downed tree, we didn't get to make the loop that my friends, more familiar with the park had planned. Nonetheless - we did cover a few miles. It was wet, slippery in places - but over all, not a bad place at all to inhale the smells of a really nice summer day. When we split up to take different approaches to the outlook - the other two of our party saw two beautiful doe's!
After talking to Liz yesterday, I hesitated in correcting Farah for her jump over the small ditch with running water... It was a smoother jump than usual - but she had less distance to cover! :-) Cato - the man - walked right across like a gentleman - but Farah refused to follow his lead. We did enjoy some side-by-side walking without incident & Farah has really improved when following other horses.Now... it's time for her very overdue bath!
