[RC] N. CA ride without the fancy stuff - sandy . l . holder

I've been to that N. CA ride every year for the past couple.  It was so funny the first year I started riding with a couple of my newbie friends.  They showed up (they'd been to another ride that had all the trimmings, so to speak) and hadn't brought any food.  I ended up feeding 6 others (and still had a little bit of salad left over).  Y'all that have camped with me know what I mean. . . I typically go home with enough food to feed my husband and kids when I get there!!

I also still remember the first time my horse and I ran into some leftover oat hay (I'd never feed my boy that and didn't even know he liked it), so picked some up to take back to our camp with us. Some wonderful neighbors (Jennifer + husband + mom + dad) who pulled some 'fresh' stuff out of the back of their pickup and brought it over to me with a 'hope you don't mind but I noticed you might be out of oat hay'!  

Yes, come prepared as they say, as you never know what the situation is going to be.

Always a good idea to bring more food and water for horses (and people)
than you expect to use.
