    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!  :)

    in the air from the lightning strikes and feel your skin tingle and your
    hair crackle...fastest 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.....
