Hitting the Trails

It was a beautiful day here after 100 mm of rain over the past 72 hours. Nothing would have been nicer than a long ride in the sun, but Raven has a girth gall that I want to see gone before I saddle her up again (and she's still too bony for me to go bareback, even with my ample padding). Tomorrow I am hoping to take David to a local farm that offers trail rides in the mountains. He may have been on horseback once or twice as a child, but nothing since. I figure we can minimize the stress (and maximize the fun) of his inaugural ride by doing it elsewhere on horses whose quirks I don't know and therefore cannot get worked up about. Should be fun!
