People often ask me, "When you ride your horses again, where will you ride?" So, I took this photo last weekend to show you the countryside near where I board "the herd". As you can see, the terrain is great for riding. I watch the ranch owner and her husband go out past the high school and climb a trail which leads to the top of a local mountain. I hope to be able to ride Quad with them after the new year. They are going to be in the Rose Parade, so they are conditioning their horses to that 5-mile ride. This is "horse country". A lot of their neighbors have horses and I frequently see riders out on the roads and dirt roads. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled and try to photograph some of them. My cousin's ranch is on the other side of the mountains, almost directly behind this ranch! You just go up over the snow and the mountain and there you are! Her area has LOTS and LOTS of horse ranches.
