There was a good turn out for the AERC Championship Ride. We barely made it
into the campground, our trailer is a on the long side. The important thing
is we did make it with no scrapes or scratches.

next time I'm at a ride, I'll try to remember and get the results.

The trail was mostly trail, rock, roots, turns, cliffs, creeks, river up,
down, and up some more. Very technical and beautiful. Was a great ride for
the championship. Horsemanship was critical for a completion.

Breakfast Sunday before awards.

Shadrach took a fall on a very narrow trail with a river a long ways below.
He landed on me, took his time to figure out how to get up, not hurt me, and
stay on the trail. If he had stepped off, it would have been the end for
him. I thank God for watching out for us. He is one fantastic horse, we
are a team.
