Seems you never forget those memorable ones. Back inearly March '96, the
weather was really nice so we trailered down to Florida to a ride at Doe
Lake....forget the name...think T might have been helping with that one.
Rained all Friday nite and the trail around the lake disappeared...into
the lake! Riders were following ribbons in water up to their horses' knees
at the start. Turned cold Saturday nite...bitter cold. The water
froze in the trailer water barrel. "Wish Granted+" had been clipped and
we were covering him with tarps, coats, quilts, and anything else we could
find over his blanket till we got back to "warmer" weather in North Georgia!

On top of the
rode across a logged "clear cut". You could smell the ozone
in the air from
the lightning strikes and feel your skin tingle and your
I've EVER rode across the top of a mountain!
I remember that
one....I was thinking ....Yikes here we are in the tallest spot around
on steel shod horses....I pulled halfway thru it, fearing my horse was
cramping from all the rain. And of course, the trail had to be long.....
