|Bare Bones 25-mi. Limited Distance|
|Who is that masked mare? :-)|
|Cato leads the way, Farah follows~|
During the 45-min. hold - she ate everything Butch put in front of her & was drinking well. Again, Amanda & I left together. Bringing up the rear was no fun, Farah fighting every stride to stay too close. We were passed by a small group just over mid-way through the loop. The day was heating up, it seemed a long haul to water - once there Farah tried out all four barrels & took a good drink from each. We enjoyed every stretch of trail through the woods - trying to absorb the cool.
Coming off the top of the Orange/Yellow loop we arrived at an intersection with many ribbons! I decided to call Butch & see if I could get some clarification on the correct path back to camp after meeting a couple riders who'd already been lost. Nice to have the connection when you need it. Just over a mile further on - we were back! Farah pulsed down quickly & completed 7th place. Butch stripped her tack & she vetted through with great scores.
