[RC] Big Big Big Horn - Steph Teeter

Just a quick note, I will write more tomorrow and post some pictures ... but
I can't keep my eyes open any longer, time for sleep. This ride is truly
truly truly spectacular. They had trail problems this year - they lost part
of the old trail (new Forest Service ranger), and the 'new trail' turned out
to be much more difficult, too tough really, so most of the riders didn't
finish in time, or the horses simply couldn't do it. Pal (Great Horse!) and
I finished just in time, about 40 minutes to spare and we were only an hour
behind the winner. By the time we finished we were both tired and
discouraged. We did the last 50 miles alone (13 hours worth) - which can be
tough for some horses, but Paladin is very special - tough, honest,
willing - and he never lost heart. What a treat to do this trail with a
horse like that. What an incredible experience, and what awesome beauty!
